Now, I know it’s silly to name a blog post “no words” but that’s how I’m feeling at the moment. I just returned from a winter solstice circle and we spoke of what changes we were looking forward to in the coming year. Our circle leader read this statement made by Joe Solmonese, Executive of the Human Rights Campaign:
“Today, America lived up to its highest ideals of freedom and equality. Congress recognized that all men and women have the right to openly serve their country. Plenty of people had already planned the funeral for this legislation. Today, we pulled out a victory from what was almost certain defeat just a few days ago.”
I have no words to express how happy I am that this repeal has finally passed.
