Love Comes In All Colors
The young adults pictured here as well as others from around the community volunteered yesterday as "Silent Witnesses" at the Reading Pride Festival.
Silent Witness PA is an organization of gay and straight allies dedicated to providing a non-violent, non-confrontational buffer between participants in this and other similar festivals from protesters who condemn them. They are the PEACEKEEPERS.
Silent Witnesses are often strait individuals who simply believe in protecting the welfare of others. It is not the concern of a Silent Witness as to a person’s particular sexual preference, but rather to care and love others. What a wonderful concept to protect your fellow neighbors. Despite a few arrogant protestors, the Reading Pride Festival was enjoyed by all and a complete success thanks to the efforts of the Silent Witnesses and Reading Police.
