Our entire organization is deeply saddened by the acts of domestic terrorism committed in Virginia on August 12th by white supremacists, neo-Nazis, KKK members, and other extremist groups. We send our heartfelt sympathy to the families of those who were injured or killed during this tragic event. Prejudice, bigotry, and hatred have never solved any problems, and they have no place in our democracy. They only lead to more hatred, more violence, and ultimately more problems. Love begets love; hatred begets hatred.
Mother Teresa was once quoted as saying something to the effect that if you invited her to an Anti-Hate rally, she would not attend; but if you invited her to a Pro-Love rally, she would be happy to accept. In other words, what you are AGAINST is not nearly as important as what you are FOR. Our small, seemingly insignificant, positive actions in the world DO have an impact, and many small positive actions in the world TOGETHER can change the course of history. So always keep love in your heart. Stay the course. TOGETHER we can re-direct the path of our country back to being a more open, inclusive, and welcoming place that will once again be the beacon of hope the world expects of us. All of us TOGETHER can spread soothing, healing love upon the earth – the kind of love that is so critically needed at this time in our history.

To be dragged off like a dead body, taken to some TSA gulag in the basement of O’Hare airport. It’s disgusting, it’s disturbing, it’s unconscionable! Continue
