Talking heads are too busy speaking over each other and not taking a collective step back to evaluate the true reasons for these peaceful protests. I feel that your piece is a fine representation of what so many agree with and understand our situation to be. It is when emotional responses take precedence over rationale thinking is when we should be worried. When the demand to take the rights away from a select group because they are not considered wanted or “respectful” is when every single American should cringe and come to the defense of our fellow countryman or woman. Freedom isn’t free, but you don’t have to wear a uniform to defend it.
