Where’s BoL’s Medal of Freedom?

The Prez met some amazing people and made some funny faces on Wednesday when he awarded sixteen people with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Included among the honorees: tennis great and gay rights activitist Billie Jean King, performer Chita Rivera, and Sir Desmond Tutu. He also posthumously recognized Harvey Milk and Jack Kemp.

Obama remarked, “At a moment when cynicism and doubt too often prevail, when our obligations to one another are too often forgotten, when the road ahead can seem too long or hard to tread, these extraordinary men and women, these agents of change, remind us that excellence is not beyond our abilities, that hope lies around the corner and that justice can still be won in the forgotten corners of this world.”
