To the Editor:
Democrat, Republican, independent, consevative, moderate, liberal. We use these labels to separate ourselves, to criticize one another for having an opinion different than mine, and worst of all, to say 'I'm better than you.' I invite you to ponder the words of Carrie Newcomer's song 'I heard an owl.'
"Don't tell me hate is ever right or God's will, these are the wheels we put in motion ourselves, the whole world weeps and is weeping still, though shaken I still believe. The best of what we all can be, the only peace this world will know, can only come from live ... I am only one person that feels we have to try."
I hope you do too.
