A year ago today the unimaginable happened and a family was changed forever.
Let us all take a moment to remember the sacrifice the Wilfahrt’s and all of the other families of our fallen soldiers have made on behalf of our country and our freedoms. What a remarkable man and soldier Andrew Wilfahrt was. He gave his life fighting for rights and freedoms he himself could not receive.
I never knew Andrew, but his light and love shines bright through his parents Jeff and Lori. What a remarkable family and an incredible inspiration for the rest of us. It is the dedication of people like Jeff and Lori Wilfahrt that makes me believe this country will see full equality for all GLBT couples.
Let us remember their sacrifice as we continue to work for that equality.
