We all hear about horrible things being done to people for no reason other than they’re different from other people. Vandalism, threats, and most horribly violence. It’s a terrible truth of human nature, people tend to fear what they don’t understand, and fear can cause people to uncharacteristically terrible things. I read the news online, I watch national and international news shows; these stories are not new to me. What’s new to me is when it happens in my own backyard.
