We stand united, affirming that the Westboro Baptist Church group, itself, is inconsequential. We stand united, because the hate represented by this group, nonetheless, exists in our country and our world. We stand united, because that hate causes pain and injustices that affect our lives and our communities We stand united, because widespread hate begins with targeted hate. We stand united at Hillel, because today Hillel was targeted, and we know that tomorrow it will be another’s home. We stand united, and we pledge: When we are no longer at Emory, we will go to the home of those who are unjustly targeted – whoever they may be. We will speak out with them. We will act, united with them, and, together, we will create a better world. I stand today, and I pledge. I will join with those who are like me and those who are different from me in speaking out against hate. I pledge to wake up when hate arrives at my neighbor’s door, and to fight hate, at my doorstep and at yours. We stand united, from diverse secular cultures and religious traditions. We stand united, gay and straight, bisexual and transgenered. We stand united, from diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds. We stand united and with the power of our bodies and our voices, we overcome the ugliness of hate. We stand united, affirming acceptance and inclusiveness. We stand united, affirming respect and diversity. We are EMORY UNITED. *With gratitude and credit to STANFORD UNITED, a project of Hillel at Stanford, for their inspirational words that helped bind their community together in a similar time of need.
