Memorial Day

Today is the day we remember and pay honor to our fallen dead. It is good to remember that our freedoms often come at a terrible price and we should indeed be thankful for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Let us especially be thankful for those gay men and women in our Armed Forces who also shared in this ultimate sacrifice. They were forced to serve silently, forced to be dishonest, for no other reason that the person they loved. This is a sad shame and stain on our nation.
