As I posted back in October, Morgan Fox and the folks at the Queer Action Coalition (QAC) continually impress me. These young people, not trained in activism, the law or public relations have stood up to the oppression of young people they have witnessed in Memphis.
Always at the heart of what they are the welfare of the individuals involved (including Zach Stark’s parents during the summer protests) and integrity.
Just read the QAC’s recent post to see what I mean. I’ve watched these folks move with such care, thoughtfulness and passion. It’s been a learning process for all of them, but they consistently have take the high road.
Much more will come out about Love in Action (LIA). Some experiences in LIA I have recetly heard from eye witnesses shock me beyond words. Any parent who cares for the welfare of their children will be shocked to hear these things as well. It will all come out in the proper time, but like the QAC has modelled for us, the welfare of individuals and integrity needs to be the focus.
When you see ugly and hateful comments, try to resist succumbing to the same spirit. Instead speak your truth in love.
