Letter: Oswego Celebrates Diversity

Dec 07, 2016 01:46PM ● Published by Steven Jack

As residents of the Oswego area, we affirm that our caring community respects and celebrates the diversity around us. We are proud of our roots as a small farming town, just as we embrace the changes that have brought us to where we are today. 

Our differences do not divide us, but rather make us stronger and inform us. Therefore, we will not stand by when signs of hate and intolerance emerge.

Some of us were born and raised here, as were generations before us, while some of us have chosen to make Oswego our home. We all, however, share in the belief that this community is stronger because we respect different ideas and are united in our love of family. 

No matter our race, religion, color, ancestry, or sexual orientation, we are all Americans, and proud to call the United States our home.
