Letter: Disappointed with public displays at Fourth of July parade

Dear Editor,

I recently attended the Williams July 4th parade. It was supposed to be a day celebrating patriotism and democracy. Therefore, I was appalled when I saw a parade participant with the letters “FJB” painted on his torso. I’m pretty sure we all know what that means. How many had to explain it to their children? On a day celebrating American values and unity, public displays of such slogans promote neither. While I certainly believe in everyone’s First Amendment rights, in an event for ALL of the community, such a sentiment was certainly in poor taste. It was neither humorous, decent, or celebratory.

Sincerely,

Terri Simon
