Reader's View: For democracy, get beyond ‘blame game’
Common experiences and mutual understanding can lead to a change of heart, which is essential.
Democracy needs a vision to stay afloat. The first and crucial step is acknowledgement. Then change can take place.
Admitting wrongs can lead to a dialogue which can open doors to reconciliation. One has to get beyond the “blame game” where everyone fails. Common experiences and mutual understanding can lead to a change of heart, which is essential.
Justice without mercy is cruelty.
Readers' View and Local Views
Letters are limited to 300 words, must be the original work of the author and must be exclusive to the News Tribune. Letters are edited for style, space, accuracy and civility.
Letter writers are limited to one published submission every 30 days.
With rare exceptions, the News Tribune does not publish poetry; letters that are anonymous, libelous or attack other writers; consumer-complaint letters; thank-you letters; or letters generated by political or special-interest campaigns.
We will consider exclusive Local View columns of 600 words or fewer. Authors should possess unique insights, and their commentaries should demonstrate greater knowledge of their subject than letters.
