Recently there have been attacks on School Boards in two of our local counties. I refer you to local news articles for details of these events. But I do not understand why civility and respect have deserted our society. I am sure there are multiple factors, but I am profoundly saddened by these events. I wish to make this statement as President of our Board of Directors
NoVa Ethical Society honors the worth and dignity of each person. People should be treated with respect and dignity no matter what their race, religion, or sexual orientation. We find these types of attacks despicable and offensive. We call upon people of all faiths and beliefs to stand in solidarity with our School Board members who have done a great job during a most challenging school year. Every human has meaning and worth. Please act so as to bring out the best in everyone.
