Use freedoms wisely | Letter
Recently, I spent a great day with my 14-year-old grandson. Before having dinner I decided to run in to Bellevue Square. Just outside the mall was a stand set up with signs wanting the impeachment of President Obama.
I had no problem with their message. That is their opinion, which I may not agree, but respect. What I found to be very distressing was the look on my grandson’s face when he saw a Hitler-like mustache painted on the president.
Yes, They have freedom of speech on the president.
Yes, They have freedom of speech and expression. They also have no respect, as to equate an American leader with a monster such as Hitler, responsible for the killing of six million people.
I wonder sometimes if we, as Americans, abuse our freedoms. Maybe a little more time should be spent by parents and schools to teach our children how to use the Constitution in a more positive way.
