Don’t give credence to dividers, naysayers

Letters to the Editor

The events in Houston have highlighted the heroic and selfless actions of first responders and volunteers alike...citizens of all stripes and from all walks of life. This is the real America, folks! Don’t give credence to the dividers and naysayers who for years have tried to convince us that we are a nation in decline and that our best days are behind us. We are in truth a noble, brave, caring, and giving people. When the peddlers of false narratives — whether they be Neo-Nazis, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, the Hollywood film industry, left-wing academia or the cynical news media — renew their accusations, remember this moment when the better angels of our nature were ascendant. I am reminded of the words of Alexis de Tocqueville: “America is great because she is good.”
