65-31

With today’s vote in the Senate to (finally) repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, American’s move closer to a society free of discrimination, bigotry, and prejudice. In a country where our liberty is supposed to allow for the pursuit of happiness, thousands will now be able to choose to serve America in uniform without having to hide their identity. With this vote, we move closer to justice and equality.

This letter is a beautiful and heart wrenching reminder of what today is about.
