Letter to the editor
This in a response to a letter to the editor published Thursday, July 12, 2001 about banning fireworks in Eudora.
I have lived here in Eudora for seven years. Granted, I'm only 14, but I believe I'm still entitled to an opinion.
The guy that wrote that letter must live on Peach or Tallgrass-somewhere in the "better" houses.
Eudora is, as I am, very patriotic. If you don't like fireworks, then stay at home with your garden hose and anger. That's your problem.
But, just because you are so anti-independence and anti-fireworks, don't take away our joy.
I work at Eudora Nursing Center and I have talked to men who were in wars. Fireworks on Independence Day is something they always look forward to.
I only have one more thing to say before I close this letter.
What kind of country would we be if we couldn't celebrate our own independence? Not a very independent one. Think about it.
