Love Trumps Hate

Yesterday, 49 individuals lost their lives in a brutal attack on our humanity.

There are no words to adequately express how I feel - because "sending thoughts and prayers" don't seem to do enough when our hearts are breaking.

We must raise our voices -louder and louder- and stand up to racism, to bigotry, to sexisim, to transphobia, to homophobia. And not just today when the spotlight is on us, but every day. In our speech, our conduct, our policies and our priorities, we must ask the best parts of America to stand up to its worst parts.

Tonight, we stand with our friends in the LGBTQ community. Please join us:

  1. Tonight at 8:30, there is a vigil at Tracks, hosted by One Colorado. The addresss is 3500 Walnut St, Denver, Colorado 80205.
  2. Tomorrow evening, there will be a second vigil at Cheeseman park at 8pm, hosted by PFLAG Denver..

Love cannot heal all wounds, but it will always trump hate.

Your friend,
Jeff

 

The place where they were attacked was more than a nightclub. It was a place of solidarity and empowerment where people come together to raise awareness, to speak their minds and fight for their civil rights.
