12:01 = one more step toward the end of ≠
Busy as a bee lately, but today is a historic, positive day for United States policy, and I wanted to take a minute to recognize.
Congratulations to President Obama and his administration, the United States Military, and to our nation as a whole for bringing about the repeal of the immoral policy of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. The policy ended at 12:01 this morning, and with it, one more systematic form of discrimination is removed from the US government.
It’s not the end, and the results of a repeal like this won’t all be positive. But the nation continues to move forward towards a more just and equal treatment of the gay and lesbian communities. And that’s only a good.
