Stand Against Hate
I write to you at this time not to say that I'm against the aspects of guns but I am against the aspect of violence. I am against the aspect of hate and I believe it is so unfortunate that guns are so often used because of hate.
And so I ask you out there to take a stand against hate, not a gun ban, just a stand against hate. One that can show you yourself have your own moral face but what you believe is whether you own guns or not it is an absolute disgrace to hate. So whether a person is black or white, yellow or green, straight or gay, in between, young or old, makes no difference for hate should not be allowed to unfold.
For we are too great a nation for this to take hold. If banning guns some would say would solve the problem, I disagree in the sense that without banning hate it makes no difference for if you don't ban hate than none of this can change for even if there were no guns it is still so wrong to hate.
So with that I say I ask you now take a stand for the moral high ground. Take a stand against hate. I believe the time has come to state are you against hate? That is why we need a Hate Crimes Bill. We need to ban hate.
