We think the United States of America is a civilized society; yet a soldier's family will not get the benefits they have earned only because they are gay. It amplifies the hardship on the family, right? Our nation can do better. I hope.
As a reminder: No one is asking for special treatment when we speak of equal rights; we are only asking for equal treatment. Why is it so difficult to give gay people the same rights as straight people? This shouldn't be difficult.
I'm sending love to Charlie's family...and I hope you will too.
