In response to your Monday article, “Fighting hate with signs of unity”:
This article about the First African Methodist Episcopal Church’s candle vigil calls attention to the need for Americans of all races and creeds to work together to once again practice unity of purpose, harmony, respect and tolerance for each other as we reside in this great nation. Just as the people at this North Las Vegas church lit a candle for harmony, may each of us speak up and express our displeasure at this country’s continual violence and disregard for human life.
History does repeat itself. Many are old enough to recall how, in the 1930s, people all over the world were complacent and too busy to stand up for their fellow man. Their apathy led to World War II. Thus, we must wake up to the need to promote free expression without violence.
Begin by practicing kindness, respect and tolerance.
