Part of me regrets writing about yesterday’s events. It is that part of our society that says we should be shamed. Shamed for breaking the law. Gandhi wrote, “An unjust law is itself a species of violence. Arrest for its breach is more so.”

Yet, I am glad to put it out there to ask the question, and so that all may know my answer. How far are any of us really willing to go in support of our ideals? To what lengths will you travel? Will you go to jail for your beliefs? Will you die for your beliefs?

Killing is wrong in every way for me. Because of that belief, I will pay any price, and I will bear the consequences with pride…not shame. May we all hold fast to our true convictions.
