In the midst of what’s unfolding in Charlottesville, I couldn’t help but share something I witnessed at the Iowa State Fair on Saturday. As my parents and I walked up the hill to get a little food, I noticed the man on the left sitting by himself. On our way back – not more than 10 minutes later – this stopped me in my tracks.
When the man on the right finished his prayer, the men hugged each other before going their separate ways. We may not be able to travel to Virginia or wherever the next demonstration of hate will be, but we can love right where we are.
