A little late, but I will be following this up with some phone calls to folks important to me and to whom I am important.
I believe that minorities cannot fight discrimination by themselves. Allies must stand with us. And today all that is asked is that you stand and be present.
You don't need to shout.
You don't need to carry a sign.
You don't need to shake your fist.
You simply need to stand and be counted.
Be present to make a statement.
Just go. Its about rights for people you love... whether you know who they are or not. Its about standing together as a nation to state that we will not let any discrimination go unnoticed.
You may call on me someday to stand up for you.
And I will be there.
