In America, it seems we have come to the tipping point. Is it just that the freest people on the planet relegate themselves to different corners and not extend the freedoms of one man to another? That’s not the America envisioned and realized in our governing documents. America, as free as it is, doesn’t deserve to be hypocritical any longer — from one free citizen to the next.
I believe it is the duty and obligation of our elected officials to start closing the gap and promote equality as a fundamental human right and a basic principle of social justice. I believe that our lives begin at conception and our equality does not stop at skin color. Your gender, your age, your origin, your sexual orientation, should never be the reason you are denied basic liberties and rights.
The future of our nation is depending on us to start standing together, side by side, hand in hand.
