Today's boundary we'll be breaking is the abolishment of the 'Don't ask, Don't tell' policy of the military. Thousands of GLBT people serve in our armed forces and they aren't allowed to tell the truth of who they love.
These wonderful, courageous men and women offer up their lives every day to protect the freedom you and I take for granted. Yet they are treated like second class citizens. They are told every minute of their tour of duty that the country is willing to sacrifice them, but it doesn't want to know anything about them. The military is willfully helping to destroy the self-esteem of thousands.
A new organization is working to try and bring the attention of Congress to the issue. Call to Duty
was started by a group of gay veterans. This group is traveling the country visiting college campuses and other places, bringing the discussion of the abolishment of the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy to the people.
Let's support them. Tell your congressmen to vote to get rid of the policy. What kind of unity can a military unit have when there are members of that unit who must keep secerts for fear of what might happen to them or their careers?
Help make this one more barrier to come down. :)
