Letters to the Editor

Today’s protests

Those of us of a certain age vividly remember the division and violence in our country during the Vietnam War.

I was teargassed twice, not because I was demonstrating against the war — I was simply trying to walk to class.

Two American presidents failed and fell because of their unwillingness to listen to the people at the time.

I fear that such intransigence exists in our current presidential administration.

Let each of us examine our hearts and characters to see how we as individuals can recreate a spirit of cooperation among all Americans.

I do not wish my life to end in the chaos that characterized my youth.

John Branstetter,
