The kids and I went to a rally this evening in support of our friends in the local Jewish community. Someone vandalized a car outside of their synagogue with an anti-Semitic message earlier this week. The rally was held to send a message of peace, and I think that the Rabbi did a great job of that.
As I posted on my FB page earlier this week, our prophet Thomas S. Monson has reminded members of the church to "show kindness and respect for all people everywhere." He has taught that, "The world in which we live is filled with diversity. We can and should demonstrate respect toward those whose beliefs differ from ours."
My dear friend Edye has gone out of her way to show kindness and respect toward us since she moved in to our neighborhood last summer. And I have been touched by her thoughtfulness. It was an honor to stand with my friend tonight who has been such an example of kindness to me!
