To the editor of THE EAGLE:
I attended the recent opening meeting at the Peru fire station regarding wind turbines. I brought along my 11-year-old daughter Cassidy to try to educate her on the issues. We were appalled by the behavior and lack of respect from some residents of Peru toward their neighbors.
In a small community like ours we are all neighbors even if we don’t live next door to each other. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and should be allowed to express themselves without being targeted as a trouble-maker or being verbally abused by an opponent. Is this what they want to teach our children? If adults act out like this in public, I can only imagine how they act in their homes. Not very neighborly, not good examples for children, who are our future.
May God bless us and protect our households -- all of us.
