All People Matter

All Freedom Is Connected

Don’t Ask Don’t Tell will soon be repealed.

This will mean that gay Americans are now one step closer to equal citizenship in our nation.

However, the Dream Act, which would allow young people brought to the United States as children to become citizens if they go to college or join the military, was rejected.

While the repeal of Don’t Ask is a great victory, we need to be mindful of the fact that the freedom of all people in connected.

There is no point in making young people suffer for the actions of their parents.

The work of progress is never completed.

The end of Don’t Ask is a reminder that victories can be won.

The failure of the Dream Act is a reminder of the tasks ahead.

This work and these tasks are the responsibility of every American.
