With the after math of what has become another American tragedy we need to stop and take a moment to breathe, and think about what this means for us as a nation today, and what this means going into the future.
As a nation, this only reflects the worst parts of us, but that doesnt take away from all the good that we do. Americans take part in acts of kindness everyday, and single acts are how times change. Deep change always begins at the individual level, and then spreads with the help of some friends. Look at the civil Rights movement. Rosa Parks was not the first woman to refuse her seat, but because she had many friends whose life’s she had touched with her altruism, a movement was sparked.
Here at Tadeos, we are proud to serve everyone no matter their race, ethnicity, age, skin color, religion, sex orientation, socioeconomic class, ability or disabilities. We have done so in the past, and we will continue to do so as we believe no business can thrive unless it accepts the diversity of its own customers. We may only be a small business, but we believe by setting this example we hopefully encourage other businesses, as well as people in our area to act with the same openness and respect towards each other.
For the future, we hope it is full of people accepting the differences in one another, and treating each other as they themselves wish to be treated.
