The following are quotes from a peace and unity rally held Saturday in conjunction with the Keedysville Ruritan Festival:
"Sharing knowledge brings true freedom. It's only ignorance that attracts people and their hate and prejudice to that 'K-club.'"
- Sevan Birky, Boonsboro
"They (the Klan supporters) accused us of scaring them away, so we felt victorious."
- Dina Coe, 61, Great Cacapon, W.Va.

"We needed an alternative to support peace and diversity and to let them know their message of hate is not reaching us."
- Linda Smith, Hagerstown
