Letter to the Editor: Fear

I have noted so much fear and insecurity in letters printed here in recent years. Whether the subject is immigration, terrorism, civil rights, the economy, or national security, the underlying theme is frequently fear. I attribute this to America’s leadership, who have chosen to lead by division, intolerance, and keeping us constantly in fear.

America has become a meaner, more chauvinistic, and more fearful place over the past 3 1/2 years; not because of 9/11, but because our eyes have been directed downward with fear by our leaders so that we are forced follow them blindly. Real leaders would direct our eyes toward the horizons, so that all the citizens of this great nation can help to find the many paths out of this valley.

Given leadership which entrusts everyday citizens with the truth, instead of manipulating them with fear and lies, our nation can emerge from this crisis stronger, more secure, and more humane than before.
