Please world, as you look at the hate spread recently by a fellow Arkansan, do not group us together.
Please do not think the citizens of the school, community, or state are all bigots. Please do not think we are bullies. Please do not think we don’t care. And, most of all, please do not think we are not doing anything about this.
There are those of us who look beyond the color of ones skin or their sexual preference. We don’t care where you came from, how much money you have, or who your family is. There are those of us who do not judge a person without knowing them. And there are those of us who will stand together tomorrow and wear purple to support our loved ones, friends, family and fellow citizens who are gay, lesbian, or bisexual. Those of us who will stand up against hate. Stand up against intolerance.
