How great to see the rainbow pride flag flying in Guthrie Park this week! Nearby towns like Berwyn and Oak Park have rainbow flags flying from their village halls, and I'm so glad to see it here. 

Thanks to the Riverside residents in the group Action for a Better Tomorrow for creating and posting a visual statement of inclusion and support here in Riverside. It's one more way to show Riverside is a welcoming community, one that's appreciative and respectful of all our citizens

Mr. Woltman, there is always the opportunity to explain in an age appropriate manner. To say that the banner is a sign of acceptance of who you love and/or who you want to marry would answer the question fully for most small children.

Daughter: What's that pretty flag for Daddy? Daddy: well, that flag represents acceptance. Daughter: acceptance of what Daddy? Daddy: acceptance of who you want to have sex with when you grow up. Daughter: what's sex Daddy? Daddy: oh boy... Yeah, I see a problem. Why are we all publically subjected to this subject of what essentially amounts to as sexual preference? It's never an appropriate public conversation and I find this offensive. I don't care who you have sex with...keep your business private please. It's so uncouth.

I do not understand why some people have issue with the rainbow flag. I would like to see rainbow flags next June in Brookfield. A nice way to celebrate our diversity that adds an extra splash of color to summer.
