Want Prayers Not Parades
Editor, The Times Herald;
Tuesday Oct. 14, your editorial was opposed to rallies and demonstrations, correct? Then why did you run two big articles on the one to be held Oct. 15? I think if people would ignore the ignorant and not publicize the demonstrations it would be better.
My brother-in-law is in Vietnam, and his wife and 7-month-old son are home praying, not out parading, and I plan to add my prayers for him and my cousin who will celebrate his twenty-first birthday in Vietnam. If anyone would take the time to ask the men over in Vietnam, they would find out they want prayers not parades, rallies or demonstrations.
