Today’s giving is for two students whose home was vandalized on 9/11, but I need your help.
But tonight I received some disturbing news
While so many people around the world were engaged in remembrance and service, a despicable act took place.
My friend who is a teacher in a local high school informed me that on 9/11, two of her students’ homes were egged. There was spit and graffiti on both front doors.
The students are of middle eastern descent.
I, as an American, and a human am embarrassed, and outraged that such bigotry and hatred continues to go on. Especially on a day already laden with so much sadness.
If you feel as I do, please add a comment to this post giving your support to these students and I will pass them along to their teacher.
I could not prevent this from happening, but I can tell those students that I am disgusted by such an action and that I welcome them with open arms.
Who will add a comment to this post and say to these students – You are welcome in my community!!!???
