Letters to the Editor
Our country is in such turmoil today. It breaks my heart to see such division between family members, friends, in our communities, and even in our churches. I see rudeness, hatred, lies, fear and prejudice all around me. Much of it is on social media, namely Facebook, but also in this newspaper.
Regarding the content of most of the recent letters to the editor that (were) chose(n) to print, I can only say that I am appalled at the depth and volume of ignorance, disinformation and cult-like thinking that is being broadcast.
My name is Daniel Tracy, and I would like to “come out” of the proverbial closet to now identify as a Democrat. I was born, raised, and currently reside in Bourbon, Missouri. I was afforded the opportunity to travel the world both in my childhood and into my adult life. I am an active member of our community who enjoys donating my time and money for causes close to my heart.
