91-year-old woman kicked out of the Air Force for being a Lesbian finally gets her discharge changed to "honorable"

Helen Grace, as featured on the "Today" show

Kudos to Megyn Kelly for featuring Helen Grace's story on the "Today" show. It's a long way from Helen's 1950s discharge from the Air Force for being a lesbian to Megyn clasping her hand over her heart at the end of Helen's story and the studio audience applauding Helen, and the story's closing line: "rights for which one is never to old to fight."

A nice reminder, in this time of struggle, that we are making progress towards a more just and open and embracing-of-differences society.
