ATL: Acceptance, Tolerance, Love

The infamous Westboro Baptist Church has been hanging around Atlanta the past 2 days.  These are the folks who hold hate-filled signs at military funerals, Jewish community centers, and high schools all over the nation.

Grady High School student Becca Daniels wanted to spread a different message, so she organized a demonstration of her own, and Atlantans from all walks of life came out in droves to show their support and share messages of love and acceptance.

It was a pretty awesome sight.  Including angels with 10-foot-tall wings.

The Westboro group… all 8 or so of them… left after 30 minutes, but the ATL group continued their demonstration all along 10th Street.

I am proud of my city.
