Love conquers Hate

This morning I saw news that a racial slur was sketched in the snow at the Idaho Black History Museum.

The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature."
