July 4 the time to voice opinions

To the Editor:

In response to “Parade no place for war protest,” the Fourth of July is precisely the time to voice opinions—supporting, as well as opposing. Having a voice is a freedom to rejoice in. I may not agree with you, or you with me, but we have the right as Americans to say it.

For many, the ideals of the 60s were not a passing fad, but a goal to aspire to. Peace is the deeply held belief that should always be upheld whether it is popular opionion or not. Standing back and saying nothing is often perceived as showing support.

Yes, America’s Day of Independence is exactly the time to celebrate our freedoms. Our Constitution, our country stands for that.—Susan Oberton, Randall.
