Private Lawson's mother told the (Arizona Daily) Star that she has been crying herself to sleep and is afraid for her son's life. I understand her pain. 'Don't ask, don't tell' impacts every service member -- gay and straight alike -- by creating a weapon to end careers and endanger service members through accusations, finger-pointing and rumor. Unless Pentagon leaders finally get a clue and lead the way in combating harassment and discrimination, I fear that attacks like these will continue to make headlines.
