Little Girl with Rainbow Flag Stands Up to Hate!

Talk about being brave!!!!

Meet Zea, a 1st grader who was attending ComFest music festival in Ohio. A preacher came there talking about his views against same-sex marriage, and Zea was there volunteering with her dad, as she does every year. She was on her way to get some pizza when she saw him, stopped, and held her flag up to him. She didn't say a word, just high fived people as they came by to support her.
Her dad posted about the event on his Facebook:
"Zea didn't just flash the flag at that hatemonger and bail. They went toe-to-toe, for several minutes, while he bellowed all of his fire and brimstone right in her face. Grown man vs. first grader. She told me afterward that she did feel scared. The one thing the people of #comfest2015 never let her feel though? Alone."
Now, as usual, the comments section on this video on Youtube is full of hate, surprisingly a lot of it aimed at the girls' parents for teaching her something "she can't possibly understand." I'm pretty sure we teach every child things they might not understand, and later in life they can learn to question those beliefs.
Surely, though, its a good thing that parents encourage their children to be tolerant and accept people regardless of their sexual preference...

Anyways, you rock Zea!!
