Another view of citizenship, from a progressive
In reference to Dawn Dale’s letter ("Losing respect of the Greatest Generation," July 1), how dare she say progressives have zero love for America?
My parents were from that greatest generation. They raised me with discipline, love and respect. In return, I grew up to love and respect my parents, community and country.
I consider myself a progressive. I find progressives to be more tolerant, respectful and compassionate of other people. I find them less judgmental.
I served my country in the military during wartime. I have been a small business owner for 31 years, abide by the law and pay my taxes. I attend a wonderful church regularly and give to charities when I can. I keep my hope and property up and try to be a good neighbor. I also take my right to vote seriously.
My parents raised me to go to church and to love my merciful God and creator. I believe we were all created in God’s image, like I was taught. Didn’t our forefathers say all men are created equal?
How dare she say I have zero love for my country? Who does she think she is?
