Message of hope comes to Columbus from a one-man protest

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — “One person can make a difference and sometimes it’s easier to hear one voice than it is to hear 500 voices that are yelling”, said Fish.

With a homemade sign in hand, this former police officer and paramedic is trying to reach out to anyone who will listen.

“If you are angry you can’t listen…the only way you can listen is if you have the chance to express how you are feeling and being able to empathize with that,” Fish said.

Not everyone was willing to hear his message and would not stop to hear what he had to say, but others felt what he is doing is a step in the right direction.

“It just takes individuals to start an intelligent conversation and say what can we do to bring about change,” said Victor Pelples who just happen to be walking by Fish on the corner.

So maybe right now we need more people like Fish.

“Allow us to be a safe nation,” Fish said. “For us to love one and another.”

He speaks from the heart and wants to share that.

“If we fill our hearts with love and light …then there would be no room for hatred,” explained Fish.
