“I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.” – Thomas Jefferson
From News 8 WROC NY,
“PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Best friends Benjamin Smith and Marcus Ellis wanted to do something small but powerful to help, following the death of George Floyd and the protests in Rochester, New York.
So they’ve set up some lawn chairs, and have camped out in front of Smith’s house in the suburban town of Pittsford, with signs simply saying: “Black or white, relax and have a beer.”
The two say they’ve gotten a handful of people to join them so far, and they have a big lawn to spread out and talk at a safe distance.”
