Love is not afraid; love is tough.

Standing on the side of love (Nancy Pierce)

Candlelight vigil in Phoenix, June 2012. (Nancy Pierce)

Because love cannot keep silent, we will bear witness. Because love reaches out, we will join hands with our partners. Because love is sacred, we will worship together. Because love delights in friendship, we will celebrate together. Because love opens us at the core of our being, we will learn, we will be moved, we will be changed. Because love is strong, we will prevail. Not today. Maybe not next week or next month. But love is stronger than fear. Love is stronger than hate. Love is not afraid. Love is tough. Love endures. We will prevail.
