Ris­ing above the hate

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Har­ri­son was a hap­pier, more lov­ing and more col­or­ful place last week­end. Beau­ti­ful weather and beau­ti­ful, smil­ing faces made Min­nie Harris Park and the town square even more glo­ri­ous. Peo­ple from all around the re­gion came to­gether to em­brace every­one’s right to the pur­suit of hap­pi­ness. Souls of all ages en­joyed mu­sic, games and true ca­ma­raderie.

If you weren’t able to make it to the sec­ond an­nual Har­ri­son Di­ver­sity Week­end (makes me a bit amazed even to type the words), be sure to make it next year. I’ve never put a lot of stock in pride, but I feel proud of every­one there, and all of you who sup­port the ba­sic hu­man rights of all. “Peace and love, Rise above.”
