Letters to the Editor

Open the door

To refuse to extend a hand to Syrian refugees because there might be terrorists among them is to allow terrorists to victimize them again. Have we forgotten the lessons of the past? To paint an entire population as a threat because of the actions of some has never served humanity. We did not shut out the Cubans for fear of spies, even in the worst of the Cold War.

Get a grip, America. We are greater than a small minded fringe group that will soon enough return to the footnotes of history.
