Accentuate the positive

BRATTLEBORO — Nothing like taking a positive and turning it into a negative.

First, I'd like to point out a quote from a wonderful 8-year-old boy: “It doesn't say that hate doesn't grow; it says it doesn't grow well.

Even at age 8, he knew that the banner was a good thing. It has been making a lot of folks feel really good about the steps they are taking in their community.

Instead of criticizing, maybe try reaching out to the group for a conversation; you may find much in common.

While I respect the writer's right to an opinion, I think it was a bit harsh to tell others how to practice their freedom of speech.
