    Love, light and acceptance. A message from Dan Reynolds.

    "Now more than ever we must see each other for what we are. One species. One people. One heartbeat. Technology has allowed us to see the world and open our minds. Yet somehow we still see color. Sex. We judge one another on appearance. Religion. Circumstance. Wealth. Education. No one chooses the environment they are born into. How am I to know how I would act if I was born into the situation of my neighbor?
    I lived a year of my life in government housing in North Omaha and my eyes were opened. It was the highest shootings per capita in the US. I grew to have such a deep love for people that were born into difficult circumstances. My brothers and sisters that were born into poverty. Many people had no family. No one to protect them or love them. They turned to gangs to find family.
    How do I know that I wouldn't do the same? I feared for my life every day on the way to school every day and had no one to protect me. I would do the same. So who are we to judge our neighbors' choices? I don't condone gang culture, but I understand the lack of choice some people have in the Environment they are born into. So we can't judge our neighbors for their choices. Because we do not understand fully.
    We can only LOVE.
    We can help end the cycle.
    We can do this by building acceptance into our communities and schools. We reach out to the person sitting alone at lunch.
    The epitome of "cool" is not hipster.
    The epitome of "cool" is the person that has pure acceptance for all. That spreads love and light.
    "Cool" is not to be "bored" and "more intelligent/witty" than others.
    "Cool" is not the clothes on your back.
    "Cool" is the understanding that we do not understand all. We only speak to make everyone else see how "cool" THEY are.
    "Cool is the eyes of a child. Arrow sees no color. No sexual orientation. No wealth. She sees only YOU.
    A beautiful human being."
