Now, redeemed with our team's fleur-de-lis.
Let the hurricanes blow.
In New Orleans we know
That redemption can come on a Brees.

The few; the proud; the...

Openly gay service members.

They are patriots, serving us well.
So, why is this such a hard sell?

To ensure, if we ask,
It's, "You're gay and you're proud? Well, do tell!"

Thanks to Mike for getting the Savant thinking about an appropriate response to this issue.
