LETTER from P. JAY FLEISHER
To the Editor:
America is on the brink of an election that will have serious implications for the future of our Country, and indeed our democracy.
I write this out concern for our immediate future, and also because I am equally concerned about the America my 6-year-old grandson will inherit. He deserves the same freedoms we all experienced growing up in a country that valued human dignity, clean air and water, and the freedom to enjoy a society free of hate and prejudice – a place that values human life and a profound respect for those who gave their lives so we could live free – in America.
All I ask is that my fellow citizens exercise their right to vote.
Remember – young American men and women died for your right to vote. Don’t disrespect their sacrifice by letting this opportunity pass. I am not advocating in favor of any candidate, but rather for the future of America – the America of my grandson.
“We the people” – you and me – we are the ones for whom those words were written at the birth of our nation.
If there was ever a time America needed you, it’s now. Show you are a responsible American by voting on
P. JAY FLEISHER
