    So much to say about this but ill just say all these standing up to hate get togethers and this is still happening?
    Its kinda like maybe someone's hate is just as strong as your love?
    Is someone rallying for hate going to change your mind about love?
    Why would anyone think if their own mind can't be changed that they can change another's?

    If the power of attraction is real..then rallying against hate is only giving hate the attention and power it needs to survive.

    If the power of attraction is real the rally should be for love..not against hate.
