Okay, here's a chance to do some good. P.Z. Myers (and, J.T. Eberhard) has a link up for this, let's give what little extra push we can from here. Put a linkt to this on Facebook, Tweet it, tell your friends, call the neighbors, wake the kids...

The White House is accepting nominations for the Citizen’s Medal.

Here's the plan:

Nominee's name: Jessica Ahlquist

Nominee's city: Cranston

Nominee's state: Rhode Island

Nominee's approximate age: 17

Was this nominee’s service performed outside of his or her regular job: Yes


The next two fields are important, below is just a sample from J.T.'s comments section:

Explain why your nominee should receive the Citizens Medal based on the criteria outlined here:

Ms. Ahlquist stood up and defended the Constitution of the United States against nearly her entire community. In the face of hate and even threats of bodily harm, she stayed strong, exhibiting the strength of character and fortitude of spirit that has made this country strong.

Describe the impact that your nominee’s service has had on individuals and/or communities:

Ms. Ahlquist has shown us all that, no matter our age or background, we can protect the freedoms that are afforded everyone. She also showed that strength of conviction in the face of adversity and hate is something that we are all capable of, and something to which we should all aspire.

This brave young lady went to bat for YOU as a secular American and an atheist. She knew what she was getting into, knew the risks, and did it anyway.
