At our core, we are all human beings trying to exist in this world, people who desire nothing more than to ensure we can provide for our children, create opportunities for our future, and know we can retire without worrying about tomorrow. It’s time we celebrate our differences and recognize our sameness so we can all live harmoniously together. Nashville has forgotten the Golden Rule: To do unto others as you’d have them do unto you. This includes equal treatment for women, minorities, and the LGBT community. Together, we can do wonderful things. Together, we can show that Tennessee is a model other states can follow.
