Bellefontaine native Katie Kelly’s terrific letter to the Forum, Examiner, Nov. 11, 2016, was both revealing and chilling. Democracy, free speech and dissent gone asunder.
Knowing this article will meet with contempt, or outright hostility, in pockets of Logan County, I’m appalled that Donald J. Trump’s hateful image as president will be America’s face to the world on Jan. 20, 2017.
It makes me ashamed of my own skin color: white.
The Bible-thumping, conservative, Republican mind-set, which has always prevailed around her in my lifetime (71), can be suffocating, in my opinion. Even menacing, as Kelly points out so well.
If you haven’t read Katie Kelly’s letter, I highly recommend that you do so.
It’s serious and timely if you supposedly believe that we will always live in a “free society.”
