- To remove a picture that is disgrace to our country's military
- United States of America
There is a picture circulating the web now that compares the day gay marriage was legalized with the day the Iwo Jima picture was taken. During February 19th-March 26th, 1945 this country lost 26,000 men at the battle of Iwo Jima. 26,000. Let that number sink in.
How many men and women have been lost to fighting for gay rights? How many were shot and killed? The numbers aren't even a fraction of the men killed that day.
These two pictures are incomparable, yet someone thought it was a good comparison. This is not a petition to go against people of the same sex being able to be married. Equality is an important thing.
This is a petition to remove the photo that so wrongly compares their fight to the fight of Iwo Jima. They are two very different historical events and need to be kept that way.
We agree in that this picture should be removed from the Internet in its entirety.
