Excerpt from the Daily Herald by Susan Sarkauskas
People put their best feet forward Sunday in Naperville to show their belief that we should practice compassion and respect diversity of culture, religion and race.
At least 60 of them trudged from a park on the DuPage River, through part of downtown, to Naperville Central High School, as part of the Community Unity Walk.
Christians, Jews, Muslims and people of other or no religious affiliation carried a banner and signs.
“This really is significant. That as religious people, we want everyone to know we’re in something that is part of your religion, that is part of your right as an American,” said the Rev. Lynn Pries, president of the Naperville Interfaith Leadership Association, one of the groups participating.
