We chose to name our group "The White Rose" to honor the free speech, pro-democratic group named "The White Rose" founded in Munich Germany in 1938. Adolf Hitler despised their ideals and ordered that they be arrested. Because of the Rose members loyalty to one another, it was one of the hardest cases the Gestapo ever had to break. They finally identified a Rose member, and tortured him until he gave up the names of the other Roses. To make an example of how despicable their ideals were to Hitler, he had them beheaded. Today they are considers martyrs of free speech, and Phila: the type of love and loyalty that develops between friends. PS. Once the defeat of Hitler was insured, the Americans dropped Hitler a little gift. Their bombers blanketed his dying Reich with phamphlets from the original "White Roses" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Rose
ROSE MEMBERS: Like the rose flower, come in all different sizes shapes and colors. They represent every different ideology and religious belief. Every age and every level of education, and they were born with a dozen different native tongues. We Roses, admit that each person is different, but we have decided not to see our differences, but to focus on what have in common. As "The Twilight Saga" teaches, we believe that love is universal. And so our motto is: "We Respect, and Support one another"
