Letter: Patience and tolerance almost gone

Editor of the Reformer,

I read this and felt many old real Vermonters would identify with it:

I never cared if you were "gay" until you started shoving it down my throat!

I never cared what color you were, until you started blaming my race for your problems!

I never cared about your political affiliation until you started to condemn me for mine!

I never cared where you were born in the U.S.A. until you wanted to erase my history and blame my ancestors for your problems!

I never cared if you were well off or poor until you said you were discriminated against when I was promoted because I worked hard!

I never cared if your beliefs were different than mine, until you said mine were wrong!

Now I care! My patience and tolerance are almost gone. I am not alone in feeling this way!
