Letter: Respect the law, respect each other

Letter: Respect the law, respect each other

On Wednesday, I saw my country attacked. Not by a foreign country but by a mob, carrying American flags, attacking the greatest nation of the world.

The last time I was called to my television to watch terrorists attack my country was 9-11. What I saw Wednesday was not just a destructive attack on a building, but domestic terrorism on the capital of the United States of America.

I have spent a good part of almost the past eight decades working, and, in some cases, fighting, for this nation. To see a mob carrying the American flag attack my capital breaks my heart.

Please, let us regain our dignity and respect for law. Equally more important, our respect for each other.
