It's Monday, August 14, 2017.
We survived the weekend and we are back to doing activities today. It's a blessing to be on this side to continue to love and bless others.
We didn't have very good news in our state of Virginia this weekend. Many of you saw or heard the news in reference to Charlottesville, Virginia. At least three people died in relation to the demonstrations in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. Hundreds of white nationalists, some wielding torches, gathered at the University of Virginia ahead of Saturday's larger rally. Their chants included phrases such as "white lives matter," "you will not replace us," and the Nazi-associated phrase "blood and soil." The mayor of Charlottesville called it a "cowardly parade of hatred, bigotry, racism, and intolerance."
How much longer will our nation continue to tolerate this kind of hatred, bigotry, racism and intolerance? It appears as if it is not getting better but worse each and every day.
So, today in connection with working on holiday cards for 2017, I specifically gave this card the title, "Peace". We need to come together as a nation and put an end to the hatred, bigotry, racism and intolerance in our country and abroad.
