"I eventually -- very solemnly, with a little bit of malice in my voice -- said, 'Ma'am, with all due respect, you can go jump off a bridge.'" - 10-year-old Will Phillips to his teacher, after he refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance in class until there is truly equality for all
He went on to add, "I've grown up with a lot of people and I'm good friends with a lot of people who are gay and I think they should have the rights all people should, and I'm not going to swear that they do." Hurrah, young Mister Phillips! Thank you for restoring our faith in younger generations.
