I hope you will stand with me in support of educating our children about tolerance of others who do not share the same personal beliefs

Julio,
I too believe it is so importance to educate our children to be tolerant of others that do not share our beliefs. It is how I raised my children. Also, I am thankful that I live in a somewhat tolerant area like San Francisco. Thank you for reminding us all. Your Little American is one lucky little boy!

Bigotry of any sort is totally inexcusable. That is how my children were brought up and their children too.

Hi Julio,
Thank you for posting this. If only people taught their children tolerance, love, compassion, and equality. Our world would be a little less scary and so much better. Hopefully, we can do right by our children and spread the word. I hope that our boys can grow up in a world where it does actually get better.

Absolutely!! We are fortunate living in Chapel Hill that our children are surrounded by tolerance and people who share our values. But we have to make them aware of what they will encounter in the rest of the world and how important it is to stand firm in our beliefs and support those who suffer through these ridiculous bigotries. The teachers at my daughter's high school are wearing and passing out white ribbons (suicide awareness) with rainbow peace symbols on them.

Thank you for posting this. This is a beautiful message for anyone in pain. So many senseless deaths. Imagine if we would all respect and honor one another. "and the world would live as one."

Yes, standing with you, Julio. I have taught my son to not judge anyone, lest he be judged himself. I am proud to say that he has no prejudices against any group, except IGNORANT people. And even there, we only have pity for the ignorant, hateful people. And then we try to speak up and try to convince them to be open minded and loving towards all...
Best,
Gloria
