In 2017, one might hope that America has moved past the prejudice and hate that has plagued past generations and has lived up to the ideals set forth by the Founding Fathers.
Hope often spring eternal.
The rally in Charlottesville, Virginia has proved that hate and prejudice are alive and well in America in 2017.
It is both sad and scary that there are people in this country who still think like this, who would condemn another person because of race, family origin, religion, etc. I feel like I watching historical footage of a Nazi rally in 1930’s Germany or reading an oral narrative from the South just after the Civil War. It is surreal that this is happening in America today.
When we speak of the Holocaust, we say never again. It saddens me that in America in 2017, we must use never again to remind us of what happens when hate and prejudice take over.
