get the tissue ready...

"I am here today because of a conversation I had last June when I was voting. A woman at my polling place asked me, "Do you believe in equal, equality for gay and lesbian people?" I was pretty surprised to be asked a question like that. It made no sense to me. Finally I asked her, "What do you think our boys fought for at Omaha Beach?" I haven't seen much, so much blood and guts, so much suffering, much sacrifice. For what? For freedom and equality. These are the values that give America a great nation, one worth dying for."

proof that the cycle of hate in this nation, can be broken. no matter what age, party, or religious affiliation you are- you cant argue that 'all (wo)men are created equal'...its high time we start treating each other like it.
