Come together...right now.

I've come to find that "politics" is just a word, an ugly word that I rather hate, so what I'm doing is not politics, the upbringing of an entire generation has a nature of its own, it is set aside by those who stand up for what is right and truly devote their beings to a cause worthy of change. This is what I'm doing and I'm proud to say I've been part of it. Now I understand what all those people in history books meant when they said, "You have to fight for what you believe, you have to manifest it yourself before any other." And I think back to Abraham Lincoln, and how he helped rid America of slavery, and I think back to MLK, and how he helped fight for the civil rights of African Americans. And maybe, just maybe, someday I'll think of myself too, as being part of something important, something really big, something that changed the course of American History.

What I'm really trying to say though is: I would like to stay long enough to see my brother and half sister grow in this country, as they were born here and I wasn't. I would like to see gays and lesbians be accepted for who they are in the military.

And so I leave you with this,Repeal DADT. Enact the Dream Act.

Tomorrow, I'm ready to take the blur off of my face.
