What the HELL!?
I'm not going to go over it again, by now we all know that Nazis held a rally complete with torches, chanting KKK slogans, and surrounding a church, then another rally this time with a counter protest where one of their members killed a counter protester. Straight up murdered her.
This isn't the 60s. Trust me, I double checked.
This is now and it is disgusting.
Tonight I attended a vigil for Heather Heyer on the Fresno State Campus.
Before I went, I told someone about it... and the response of "Why would you go, it doesn't affect you?" made me sick.
I am so glad I went/
It was moving and important. We held space, sat in silence, sang and prayed together,.... we shared from out own lives and vowed to work to stamp out bigotry and fascism here in Fresno (starting with the removal of the current Fresno Board of Education president Brooke Ashjian after he went on record as a bigoted anti LGBT rights scumbag.)
As I left I couldn't help but think of the UU chant:
If not us, then who?
If not now, then when?
