Graham: Resident is concerned about messages in Sun City

Posted

My concerns are about the person who left a hateful, unkind note in the mailbox of an elderly person unable to correct the condition of her American flag.

Why not instead leave a note offering to help by leaving your name and number/ The wind being so strong for many days not only tore the flag to shreds but damaged the rope to try and get it down.

For your information a lot of people cared about her anguish over not being able to do anything about it herself and tried to help, to no avail. However, there was still hope and the new flag she had purchased flies proudly.

The attitude of the person who left the note concerned me greatly as it was consistent with what exists in the country where that American flag still proudly flies. It is my opinion that to overcome such evil, we must love one another more with kindness, understanding and acceptance to overcome undesirable conditions, if only one person at a time.
