Letter: Search and destroy

State Rep. Al Baldasaro is on a “search and destroy” mission, degrading and attacking the supporters of the Honor and Remember Flag. He is joined by Rep. Frederick Rice, who insulted H&R supporters by comparing the H&R flag to a Vietcong flag.

If either of these gentlemen spent this much time and effort promoting something positive, think of what they might do – maybe find shelter for the homeless, feed the hungry, go to a disaster area and dig out the bodies of fallen children, comfort their families.

They are not obligated to like the H&R flag, but do they have to inflict more pain on the families of those who are already grieving? I would never ask these men to stand in my shoes or those of my family for a minute to endure the heartache that we feel. I will pray that they find some place in their hearts to just stand down and leave us with our tokens of remembrance as we honor our children.
