Ava Lowrey is a 15 year old girl in Alabama, which is not exactly a bastion of tolerance and independent thinking, so her website, “Peace Takes Courage,” is all the more remarkable for it.
Whether or not her expression of faith or politics is fully informed or “mature” is beside the point. She’s crafted what amounts to powerful commentary — a sort of quiet polemic — about the insanity of our current political leadership.
Her work illustrates the power of the Internet, as well. That she could express what she does and have it immediately available to the globe.
Evidently, this young lady has received death threats and expressions of vitriolic hate from people who call themselves “Christian.”
These bits of media are, indeed, hard to watch. But truth often is, no?
