It seems like we’ve decided to travel backwards in history to a time when certain minority groups were treated quite horribly. I, as a member of the LGBTQ community, am scared for the future of this country not only for others like me, but for everyone living here. There are people dedicating a lot of time to discriminate those who simply want to be themselves. Events like the Orlando shooting add fuel to the fire. A man killed so many people just because they were LGBTQ.
Someone might mention the fact the Congress just recently made gay marriage legal. Yes, that was amazing news and a big change in our country. A change that was supposed to be positive. Instead, there are rivals, court cases, even more abuse, and even more discrimination happening. A bill won’t change us. We have to change the way our people and kids think about this so that the United States can grow as a country and keep achieving equality. We have to change us. And with a president who is not willing to support the LGBTQ community, we will never change. You have to lead the people of this country in the right direction.
I ask you that you, as the president of the United States, protect the rights of all citizens of this country. They were promised liberty and happiness, and right now a lot of them don’t have it. I ask that you take all the actions necessary to protect the LGBTQ community in the United States. I ask you to protect our freedom and equality.
