Monday Evening, October 29, 2018: We Stand Against Hate

In the face of hatred, we will forge understanding;

In the face of violence, we will build peace;

In the face of bigotry, we will breed tolerance;

In the face of discrimination, we will seek justice;

In the face of darkness, we will spread light.
