To The Editor:

A while back, Russia was sounding off and we thought for sure we were going to be at war. The President was talking on TV but said nothing about getting involved I was so amazed and proud of him. A short time later, he offered our help.

I think we have lost enough of our men. Take a look at our country now. I think we need our boys right here. Our country has had all kinds of catastrophies in quite a few years, hurricanes, tornadoes, land slides, fines and floods.

I think we have lost enough of our men. Take a look at our country now. I think we need our boys right here. Our country has had all kinds of catastrophies in quite a few years, hurricanes, tornadoes, land slides, fires, floods.

I think we should keep our boys home and let our men who are unemployed, the boys who fighting over seas. We need help. We spend fortunes to help other countries, we need a fortune right to straighten up our own country.

We’re helping people build other countries, sending food, while we have people who are starving right here in our country. Why do we come last. Countries all over the world are fighting. We have problems here. Killings, drugs, murders. It has to stop.

We need help, from our own people. They belong here, helping this country get strong. Wake up. Stop trying to perfect the world. The people are foolish to have to kill each other off and we have to jump in and let our boys get crippled and killed for them. We are fools. What happened to our people. Remember that flag that flew high over us.

We were a proud country. Perhaps if we changed and got involved in our country’s affairs, we’d be proud of this country, we’d hold our heads high and we’d be proud to be Americans.

Wake up, God help us and help yourselves.
