I pledge to Push Back The Darkness of ignorance and hate with the light of knowledge and friendship by:
* Learning about the experiences and challenges faced by other members of my community, so that I may "see through their eyes" and understand them better
* Assisting others by supporting them if they are being targeted by ignorance or hate - the standard you walk past is the standard you are willing to accept, and I will no longer walk past things I would not want to happen to myself
* Sharing my own experiences and challenges with other members of my community, so that they may in turn see through my eyes and understand me better
* Make a difference through small acts of kindness towards others in my community - offering a hug, dropping off a snack, holding open a door, and other such simple gestures have a beneficial impact which is far greater than the effort put in
By doing these things, I will be taking real and effective steps to ensuring that the community I live in has strong bonds of knowledge and friendship between its members, and the light created by that will drive out the darkness of ignorance and hate.
