daily kaddish: for “Don’t ask, don’t tell,” may it rest in ignominious peace


Today’s Kaddish is for that exemplar of awful legislation, the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law that finally received its dishonorable discharge from the United States armed forces. It’s a Kaddish for institutionalized oppression, ignorance sanctified by a government, disgraceful narrow-mindedness.

A kaddish for those who were asked, who told, who weren’t asked, who didn’t tell, who were discharged, who died in service, who died in sadness at undeserved discharge.
