Imagine…

Friday, March 22, 2013

From the Anti-Defamation League:

“Take just 80 seconds of your time to watch this powerful video, which imagines a world without racism, homophobia or anti-Semitism — a world in which the hate violence that took the lives of Martin Luther King Jr., Anne Frank, Daniel Pearl, Matthew Shepard and others did not happen.

“Imagine what these individuals could have continued to contribute to society if bigotry, hate and extremism had not cut their lives tragically short.”

  1. This is possible. Granted, all of the people we’ve lost so far might not come back to do all of this; Matthew Shepard is somewhere better than here. But a world like this? This is more than possible, and we can do this. We can’t give up.

  10. Always make me tear up to wonder what Matthew would have offered the world. The rest at least had a chance to make an effect. He never did.
