President Obama Repeals "Don't Ask Don't Tell"
"We are not a nation that says 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.' We are a nation that says, out of many we are one. We are a nation that welcomes the service of every patriot. We are a nation that believes that all men and women are created equal," said President Obama on September 20, 2011 when he signed the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
Tears of joy during this beautiful video! Thank you President Obama! The repeal should have happened years ago and even better yet, should never have been necessary and instituted in the United States... a land where personal freedom is respected.
I am frankly amazed that so many people had to fight so hard for more than a decade, since 1993 to repeal this failed law.
Congratulations to all service men and women previously discharged from the military and to those who have been trying to lead double-lives in the shadows of this law. You finally have your government's permission to go back to being "real" people! The battle has been won.
