I will reblog this until the stars burn out……
white people are very brave when it comes to terrorizing black children who do not have the power to fight back. and are very surprise when someone comes to their defense.

Tatjana Plitt is journeying across the country and photographing military families to demonstrate that the so-called Defense of Marriage Act hurts real couples and real families. This couple, for example, Ashley and Liliana, recently welcomed a baby boy into the world, Brice. However, even though Ashley is on her son’s birth certificate, DOMA prohibits her from receiving the “paternity” leave that any other military spouse would receive in the event of the birth of a child. Reblog this photo or click the heart to stand with Ashley and Liliana, and check out all SEVEN amazing portraits.
In this gut-wrenching talk, Sergeant Andrew Chambers shares the haunting story of his time in Iraq and the tough transition home that landed him in jail. It’s a powerful testimony to the struggle our soldiers face when they come home, and the tragic ways that they can be denied the help they need.
For anyone looking to support a veteran, we encourage you to heed Chambers’ advice: "Find a veteran and listen to his story. A lot of us just need somebody to talk to."
Happy Veteran’s Day.Our government uses our warriors then discards them when they don’t need them anymore. People who have fought for this country deserve so much better.
^^^^^THIS, what my friend said. Veteran services are a joke, for the most part
PTSD is REAL! I work with seniors who fought in the Vietnam War, and that PTSD still stops them from living a normal civilian life. I pray that all of my friends who are active, been deployed, about to be deployed know that they don’t have to suffer in silence.
Love is Love
Kind of been out of the loop all day, but DOMA and Prop 8 are gone :)
Thank you 5th Amendment.
Might be baby steps, but we’re getting there.
I can vote because I’m human, not because I’m male.
I can go to school because I’m human, not because I’m white.
One day, I want to get married because I’m human, not because I’m straight.
