To the editor:

We the undersigned condemn messages of hate of any kind, including the White Supremacist fliers distributed along Newtown Avenue in Norwalk, this past week.  We stand with our neighbors of all races, colors, ethnicities and religions. We will not judge anyone by the color of their skin, whom they choose to love or who they voted for. This cowardly act of leafleting can make us stronger for  we are all Norwalk and we are better than a divisive, hate filled message.

Let us heed the words of Mayor Rilling and stand together in solidarity. After an affront of this nature, The Southern Poverty Law Center, a national civil rights watchdog group, suggests to “Talk to your children, your neighbors and others about the incident. Use the incident as an opportunity to reinforce your own values about tolerance and acceptance.”

Please join us in our work for a better tomorrow for all. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” (Rev. Dr. Martin L. King, Jr.) .

About this site

NancyOnNorwwalk.com was conceived as the place to go for Norwalk residents to get the real, unvarnished story about what is going on in and around their city. NancyOnNorwalk does not intend to be a print newspaper online; rather, it exists to pull the curtain back and shine a spotlight on how Norwalk is run and what is happening regarding issues that have an impact on taxpayers’ pocketbooks and safety. As an independent site, NancyOnNorwalk’s first and only allegiance is to the reader.

About Nancy

Nancy came to Norwalk in September 2010 and, after reporting on Norwalk for two years for another company, resigned to begin Nancy On Norwalk so she engage in journalism the way it was meant to be done. She is married to career journalist Mark Chapman, has a son, Eric (the artist and web designer who built this website), and two cats – a middle-aged lady and a young hottie who are learning how to peacefully co-exist.
