Jeremy Hooper from goodasyou.org has President Obama’s Pride Proclamation posted on his website. It reads in part:
“From generation to generation, ordinary Americans have lead a proud and inexorable march toward freedom, fairness and full equality under the law — not just for some but for all. Ours is a heritage forged by those who organzied, agitated, and advocated for change; who wielded love stronger than hate and hope more powerful than insult or injury; who fought to build for themsevles and their families a Nation where no one is a second-class citizen, no one is denied basic rights, and all of us are free to live and love as we see fit.
The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community has written a proud chapter in this fundamentally American story.
