Dominican did a fabulous job with the production of The Laramie Project. If they choose to extend the performance (as I truly hope they do), it is a must-see! As a River Forest resident, I was proud to participate in the moving (both emotionally and physically), peaceful demonstration that Dominican perfectly executed. I don’t know if it was the power of peace or the Chicago wind that ended the event early, but, in either case, kudos to Dominican for its leadership in countering hate. It was truly an example of mission in action: Residents, students, teachers, parents and even the school’s president gathering to take a stand for peace. Hope won!
