A voice from the "Greatest Generation"

What we fought for on Omaha beach indeed.





"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." That's what this man fought for, what he considered worth dying for and what he believes is the right of his son and all LGBT people in the country - EQUALITY.

Now is the time. Ours is the generation. Will we fight for what is right or will we surrender to the status quo?

People tend to forget that it wasn't just Jews who were massacred in Germany.

"As many as one-half million Gypsies, at least 250,000 mentally or physically disabled persons, and more than three million Soviet prisoners-of-war also fell victim to Nazi genocide. Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, Social Democrats, Communists, partisans, trade unionists, Polish intelligentsia and other undesirables were also victims of the hate and aggression carried out by the Nazis." http://www.auschwitz.dk/docu/Faq.htm

Thank you for posting this video.

Let's hope we're still up to it....we made a difference in every decade when there was a fight to be had....hopefully we aren't too old and worn out to keep it up!!!!!!!!

I laughed and cried for joy all at the same time. This man is very brave. And right.
