This morning Denny Starnes, principal of Sacred Heart Academy, addressed the students and community at large. His statements were broadcast online, and many watchers hoped that the school would be announcing Dominic's return as speaker in the upcoming classes graduation. However, this announcement did not come. Instead, principal Starnes emotionally spoke of the difference between his, and the student population's, views and those of Bishop Cistone and the church at large. His brave support of the students may very well end up costing him his job, and this too must be used to fuel the change we are seeking.
I believe that with continued effort, the bishop, the diocese, and the church at large will see that they have made a mistake. We must continue to live through love, and work for change. We WILL see Dominic speak at graduation, and we must stay focused on the Bishop until he rights this wrong.
