Imagine life under true oppression | Letters

September 20, 2013 · Updated 10:20 AM


I have just learned of the egregious behavior by one member of the public at a recent county commissioner meeting who referred to a friend of mine as a “Nazi.”

My friend happens to be German and lived most of her life under Nazi oppression.

To the person who said this to her; imagine being stripped of all your freedoms. The freedom to attend government meetings. The right to have your letters printed in the local newspaper. The right to criticize government.

You have insulted my friend in the most hurtful way. A shallow apology is too little, too late and will not make right your unAmerican behavior.

My friend is a medical expert who understands the damage those jets can cause to one’s hearing.

She is also one of the finest people I know — a wonderful American citizen.

The lawsuit will compel the Navy to provide and Environmental Impact Statement.

A judge will ultimately decide what must be done.

Until then, let’s all behave honorably.
