Inspiring words of Courage and Compassion
We at the WNYPC are very grateful to so many for Saturday. Speakers were eloquent, varied, so disciplined and respectful of the time, and so inspired and inspiring.
Two especially moving were Jaimie Marzullo, Chair of our Communications Committee, and her son Aiden. Jaimie’s very wise and wonderful words are below. We are honored to share them here.
We were also honored by the courage and compassion of Aiden. At only 9 years old, he was so filled with the Spirit that he stood in front of more than 3000, and said, “I will never stop fighting for the equal rights. And to all the kids, when you fall down, I hope you always get back up again.” In the face of overwhelming emotion, he held it together to say what he had to say to the crowd and especially the other children.
