This letter is in response to the appalling and disturbing letter submitted by Roger Bowman on June 22. How dare he say many Americans have a false sense of pride in our country. Who is he to say how any American truly feels or question anyone’s patriotism? Many veterans surely do not appreciate their pride being called false.
He says that we have become a much divided society. Is this a new concept? Does he not watch the news, see the separation during elections, or recall learning about the Civil War? As much as I would like harmony in this nation, history and common sense tells us this isn’t going to happen.
What really disturbs me is the comment made about racial purity. It makes me cringe to compare anyone to Adolf Hitler, but it seems fitting.
