Dear City Council member:
This letter is simply to ensure that you have asked yourself the question: "To what extent does the Norman City Council's needless provocation of such controversy as the Homosexual History Month proclamation mean that on our hands rests some of Zach Harrington's blood?"
Was it worth it to you? Will you and other Council members learn to analyze with greater care the law of unintended consequences? While I have no wish to self-righteously condemn anyone, yet recognition of a mistake and repentance of that mistake is essential. You bear some, if not much, responsibility. My hope is that you will recognize your role in this tragedy, repent of it, and adjust your behavior and future decision-making accordingly. Standing tall in irrational pride is not a virtue.
