Today is Memorial Day, in which we remember the people who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in our military's armed forces on battlefields around the world.
It's significant to note that momentum for allowing transpeople to openly serve in the US military ranks is growing at this time, and that we may actually see it happen before the end of this decade.
In the meantime, let's shift this back to the people who deserve the focus on this date, the people we have lost while honorably serving our country.
They fought and died so you can have the constitutional freedoms that far too many people take for granted or ignorantly want to deny to others.
So at 12:01 PM, take a moment to think about those fallen warriors, and resolve to do a better job in your own ways of fighting for the human rights and freedoms of all.
