We will prevail

To the Editor:

The United States of America is a relatively young nation compared with others. From the start of our country, many people have fought and died for our way of life.

Some may think we grew too fast. It seems that the past 30 years or so, for every step forward, we move two steps backward, repeating mistakes from the past. Whether it was our mistakes, or other countries, it is part of history and we have yet to learn from it.

Lately, we have immigrants, legal and illegal, that are in our country wanting to change it. They want to change our way of life and laws to that of the country they came from.

Years ago when immigrants came to our country, when they stepped foot on our soil, they would kiss the ground and be thankful for a chance to become an American citizen and be part of our country.

We are a resilient country; we will get back on track.

To those who come to our country and want to change it to the country they came from, I say, “We did not invite you here. If you do not like our way of life and laws, feel free to leave.”

This is the United States of America, our country. Yes, we are in dark times now, but stand up for our Constitution and vote responsibly! We will prevail if that happens.
