RV-004 Everett "Alx" Alexander: 1 of 3 p
This piece seeks to remind people that hate is more than a word. It is a young man chained to a fence, beaten and murdered. It is a bombed out building and mutilated books. It is the denial of basic human rights such as freedom to marry (outside the church) and to serve our nation openly. Hate, whether hidden beneath the guise of religious or political convictions, is the destruction of democracy and human individuality.
