Responding to hate.,,,,,,
Nazis and neo-Nazis marched in my town today. Check out the response........

<snip> At the park, it was anything but hatred and anger, instead there was a celebration.

"What we've been able to do as a community is to turn something that looked like it could be a really bad problem for us, something that we all hate to see come to Columbia, but turn it into Columbia's advantage," said Columbia Mayor Darwin Hindman.

Myers can't stand the thought of the neo-Nazi's message, but she says a gathering of peace is the right thing to do.

"I think this is the appropriate way to handle it," said Myers. "I do believe, that the neo-Nazi's do have a right to march. However, this is, I think, the appropriate response to it is getting together and showing solidarity in a really positive way."

I hope that it sets a good example that makes national news.
