I consider the time it took for our country to remove the obstacles to civil rights for African-Americans and then I wonder. Years from now, after gay couples are allowed to have the same legal rights as me and my spouse, who will we single out then?
Every year we hear concerns about how the American education system is failing our youth. We ask, "How can we compete with other countries if our students rate lower in math and science?" But at the same time we listen to those who purposely push aside science when it comes to climate change, evolution, the environment and more. Regardless, we will endure. Just like Ozymandias.
