A quote that brings tears to my eyes

“Nobody knows what happens later on with this bill, but tonight and tomorrow morning there are millions of Americans – young and old – who are going to say, ‘You know what? My country doesn’t hate me. Maybe I’m not such a bad person.’ That shouldn’t be necessary, but as long as it is, I’m grateful we were able to say it.” Barney Frank speaking at a press conference after the historic House vote on ENDA Share
