Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — But in the United States, you can aspire to be something and then set goals to achieve. Please spare me the political speeches about certain people or policies that keep people down. I live the American dream every day. It is alive and well and something that other countries desperately want.
The people that attack our country, whether they are from here or not, do not understand us. We know most countries hate us, and we know why they hate us. We are rich, arrogant, strong and stubborn. I’m not trying to be a rah-rah guy waving the American flag in the face of tragedy. I am just tired of innocent people getting killed by cowards who think they are going to change the American way of life.
The person, or persons, who did this should keep one thing in mind. We will find you and you will be brought to justice. You will not be allowed to slip away. America may be the ultimate dysfunctional family, but we are more than willing to come together long enough to make you pay for what you did.George N Root III is a Lockport resident, a lover of the city of Boston and a lover of the American way of life.
