So many of us wept tears of joy and relief when you took office, ending an eight-year Reign of Madness that did more harm to the world than good.
You are Our Change, Our Hope.
Your journey has been a long one. You stand on the shoulders of Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass and Martin Luther King Jr. and innumerable other courageous Americans who have fought to help our nation fulfill its promise of liberty and justice for all.
Now it is your turn to help our nation fulfill its promise. You have the chance to bestow equal rights on all Americans, regardless of their differences. Right now, you have the opportunity to ensure that the government provides health insurance benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees.
Please do not stand on the backs of gay people. You know what it's like to experience discrimination and hatred for being different from the dominant group. Do not be part of the pattern of people attaining power and then using it to keep others down.
Be our hope. Be the change. Be the president who truly brings liberty and justice for all to the United States of America.
We're counting on you.
