I can't express how happy I was to read those letters to the Editor (7/16/11).
Not only does it hit home to all Americans, but it SHOULD.
The one that stood out the most was the one written by Gene Duffy, it was spot on and well written; And the piece written by Dr. Thomas P. Walker, Jr was also fantastic and I learned something about our area from it that I never knew. I hope I see more readers send in letters citing our local history and also about the principles this country was founded on but seem to have lost along the way, especially understanding and applying what our Constitution and The Bill of Rights says as well as understanding the Declaration of Independence.
Let us hope we find our way back to our Human dignity. Thank you for your time, and keep up the great work.
