In Your View

The Independent

ASHLAND — Who stole the American dream?

Who stole and American dream?

Was it you? Or was it a few greedy and power-hungry men who cared not for America but to achieve the power of God over American citizens to do their will? Democracy is an idea when people can live together with love, trust and harmony. Have you failed or has everyone else failed you?

I am a World War II veteran with the 77th Division and I have seem this country change from a loving, trusting country to a divided nation since they took God out of the schools and public places.

Cliff Barker


Are we afraId to speak out?

There’re an old song that asks: Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

It is happening again in our time and in our land in more ways than one.  The recent marriage ceremony of a same-sex couple perfomrmed by a member of the U.S. Supreme Court drives another nail in our Lard’s hand and thrusts another spear in his side.

What is happening to our country? Does anyone care or dare to speak out? Who has the courage to be the “watchman on the wall?”

Or will we just wait to see what happens?

Earl H. Stewart
