Letter: Delayed anger

When I got my Miner Sunday paper (Oct. 23) I was shocked and fired up. The picture of a 14-year-old girl and her mother with sneers on their faces like “we made the front page.”

I would love to make a trip to KRMC to get my foot out of their rear ends. Wasn’t she taught to respect the flag of the United States of America? There are other ways to get attention instead of “copy cat” a stupid NFL player. If you can’t be grateful for our flag and freedom, “get the hell out.”

Look at all our young men who gave their all so we have this freedom.

The ones who gave their lives, arms, legs, some eyes and minds, so ungratefuls like you live free.

The look on your faces makes me sick. That ungratefuls like you have that right to not salute our flag shows your character and how ungrateful you are.

It’s an honor to salute the flag, too bad you weren’t taught that.

You have a right to go to school, to dress as you please, not cover your face and be disrespected because you are female.

You should wise up and learn about our country and flag. And thank God you live here.
