Letters to the Editor

Respect the individual

To the editor: With each new day of my life I gain a new appreciation for the marvelous presence of diversity and contrast that life provides for us to grow and expand our individual resources. I’d like to share an insight into the energy that creates worlds, to somehow benefit my family ...

We’re abandoning human rights

To the editor: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia — President Trump said “We are not here to lecture, we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be or how to worship.” When America openly quits defending human rights, women’s rights and civil rights, how low can we go? ...
