To the Editor,

Much attention has been paid to a constable expressing his views on current state of affairs. Bless this man for using the right to free speech, although of questionable content, and his service in defending that overseas.

His positions on things beyond his authority to act in an effective manner have many upset, many in agreement and many more shaking their heads. But I need to remind us that we cannot have an opinion that is exclusively the definitive answer to any problem without allowing for others. What once was a campaign strategy has become fodder for dividing us from each other. A black and white view of a colored world with infitite shadings.

I respect the man’s right of expression while reserving my own to not join a imagined war as I am sure he will not join a civilized peace.

It’s your thing, do what you want to do. Just don’t expect me to join you. Be an American.

Alan Fox,
