(Note: This is an update on an issue described in a commentary published at theonefeather.com on Thursday, May 31. This update letter is dated the following day, Friday, June 1.)
First and foremost, I would like to say, “Thank you!” Everyone has been overly supportive and encouraging! Unified together we can make a difference, and I wanted to let you know that we have.
Patricia P. Grimes, one of the owners of Harry’s on the Hill, has reached out to let me know that what happened to me is not their philosophy and inconsistent with their values. They have terminated that employee and are finding a way to take down the statue.
She asked if there was anything I could think of that they can do to right this wrong. I did not know how to answer this question. I am puzzled, I do not know how to fix this but going forward because we are always doing things for our community. I told her that we have a lot of events where we give back to the community, our kids, and the elders where donations are welcome. She said she welcomes any idea and that we can send those request to the dealership to be reviewed. They have also made a public apology statement on their Facebook site.
None of this could have been accomplished without your support, love, encouragement, and passion! I sincerely want to Thank every one of you! We can make a difference when we stand together!
