The ‘rule’, not the ‘exception’…

    While digging through the news this morning, I came upon a very nice article. By now, everyone has heard about what happened at Club Q in Colorado Springs. While very sad and troubling, I don’t want to dwell on the ‘exception’, rather on the ‘rule’ The ‘rule’ in this case comes in the form of a straight, US Army veteran, who didn’t care, but acted on instincts “Because it’s about community”. His words, not mine. And who is the ‘him’ I refer to? A former U.S. Army officer, named Richard M. Fierro, two-time Bronze Star recipient. “The 45-year-old Fierro was there to watch his first drag show with his daughter, her boyfriend and several other friends. He joined because one of his daughter’s friends was performing.”

    He could have said to himself, ‘the heck with this and walked out’. But he didn’t. He did the right thing; for ‘community’. Something we tend to loose sight of at times. Because Mr. Fierro is the ‘rule’; and not the ‘exception’.

    BTW, both Club Q and the Atrevida Beer Co are listed in our Local Places. So, if you can, check them out, and send them a note of thanks and support. Michelle
