I'm a fighter and a lover.

While women weep, as they do now, I'll fight; while children go hungry, as they do now, I'll fight; while men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do, I'll fight; while there is one drunkard left, while there is a poor girl upon the streets, while there remains one dark soul without the light of God, I'll fight -- I'll fight to the very end!

This morning, my President, Barack Obama, signed the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell into law. December 22, 2010 is a day of celebration for the LGBT community, the military community, the United States community, and the world community. Though we have many miles left ahead of us in this fight, we are one step closer to actualizing equality in this country. Praise God for this beautiful day.

Merry first Sunday after Christmas!
