LETTER: Protestors should “Smoke something” & “Chill out”

History is not something you approve of or remove. It is where we have come from so that we can judge what we should do in the future. If you are offended and your sensitivity is wounded, then strive to make our society better.

Tearing down and burning the past could cause you to make the same mistakes in the future. Most importantly, what makes your wants and opinions more valuable than those of us seniors who know that history is important to progress. ‘

Listen buttercups, you will have plenty of time 20 years from now to tear this country apart but for now, smoke something and chill out. Our veterans sacrifice should be respected for giving ALL of us our freedoms.
