Frightening pictures from Charlottesville

I have been reading and watching the news from Charlottesville this weekend and am saddened for my country. It's never okay to promote violence, especially in the name of racism and religious discrimination.
It is not patriotic to spew hate and embrace the racist symbols of the south. We are better than that. How does anyone think it's okay to wave a Nazi or a confederate flag? You are not a patriot, you are not making America great, you are not what this country stands for. Please, let's call out these hate-mongers for what they are and rise above.
Love is stronger than hate.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" is about a creative, curious, kind and messy girl who loves science and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a YA novel about a family broken apart by a secret and a misunderstanding. Future books in the Aliana series will include dealing with forest fires, learning about clouds and animal habitats.
