To the editor of THE EAGLE:
What is going on with our world? Our elected officials have abandoned our beliefs of fair play, common sense and the golden rule. Their egotistical attitude of entitlement is hurting all people, especially the most vulnerable.
Why can one person or a small group dictate to the majority? These officials get many perks, which we don't. They have a car with gas and maintenance, free travel, a free gym, meals at the best restaurants and better insurance. How can they relate to us "normal" people?
This is showing up in every aspect of life. I go to my church but I don't demand that everyone believe as I do. Prayers are optional, so if you don't believe in God just sit silently while the majority say their prayers. Our flag represents our country. If you don't agree with our way of life with our freedoms then move to another country.
Let's get back to the basics and put more time into working together with the goal of America being "of the people, by the people and for the people" as our ancestors began. RUTH HEATH
