An historic weekend: National Equality March

I have been quite busy with school this past week and haven't had time or much inclination to scour the web for things worth posting, but this one is a must.  Last night President Obama addressed the HRC, an historic event in itself as he is only the second sitting president to do so (Bill Clinton being the first in 1993).  He opens the speech quite humorously, but soon gets down to business.  I truly hope this is not more rhetoric and that he puts his words into action.

In the words of Cleve Jones...."We seek nothing less than equal protection under the law in all matters governed by civil law in all 50 states"

You can watch coverage of the historic march on CSPAN today from 2pm-5pm EST.  Below is the presidents speech at the HRC dinner last night.
