A Commentary On Charlottesville And Beyond

What I saw in Charlottesville on the campus of the University of Virginia last night was sickening and immoral. There is nothing right about hate. America should be better than that.

No one has a birthright to all the wealth and all the privilege in life. Just because you are from one race doesn’t give you a birthright to the great bounty given by the Creator.

There is more than enough to go around. This country has welcomed people from around the world to its shores and we are a colorful tapestry of individuals who all want to have a part of the promise that has been afforded to many for generations.

I would even go as far to say that America is only one of many places where people are free to dream, to achieve, to live, to believe and to love as they wish. The globe is full of opportunities and that is where we are in this time of history.

  1. Amen! I am Canadian and I totally agree with you. Sickening and I believe that Canada also has room for people who want to work toward making a better life. But even here we have people who carp about our refugee and immigration policy. that is not my Canada. Thank you Tony you are a beacon of light!
