Community should have shown support for Webster's actions

Posted: Monday, July 14, 2003

Shame on you Soldotna and Kenai. You have just given honor to those who disrespect our country and our men and women in military service.

The protesters not only demonstrated against our country, but they then cowardly hid behind those very rights which we have only because our military members have fought for them over and over again through the years, often giving up their own lives in the process.

I'm proud to be living in a town that has not only adorned its trees on Main Street with yellow ribbons but also added photos of our local active service people to the trees so that we can remember to silently say a great big "thank you for your sacrifices" and "may you come home safely" as we walk down the street.

You should all hang your heads for not stepping up to the plate with Mr. Webster and letting the demonstrators know that they are the ones out of line.
