Freedom is never free. Korean War veterans have used this expression, which states clearly this fact of life. The cost of freedom continues to mount, but the American people have the strength and will to bear this burden, because the alternative is unacceptable to us all.
Our elected leaders have been made aware of the public outrage over this dastardly attack. But care must be used to avoid any attacks on Arab or Muslim people who reside in our country. The mistakes made against the Japanese-American community by our government during World War II must be avoided at all costs.
All of our citizens are guaranteed all the rights and freedoms under the U.S. Constitution, regardless of race, color or creed. We are all equal and of one color - red, white and blue!
