More than 900 of you stood with us, adding your names to the call for light over darkness, love over hate. And we have no idea how many of you forwarded our message to others. However you may have taken part, you helped us reject the vicious ugliness directed at a mourning family. The response to Thursday’s statement was overwhelming and a reminder that basic tenets of civility and respect remain, and that we will not allow others to claim our faith and use it as a weapon.
Thank you for standing with us in light and love.
–George Reed, Executive Director
