Letter to the Editor, April 21, 2021: Roosevelt's caution applies to left-leaners

Roosevelt's caution

applies to left-leaners

Editor, Times-Dispatch:

I write in response to Karen Olshansky's April 18 Letter to the Editor, "Maybe different types of personal freedom?" Her quote from Eleanor Roosevelt is right on target: "With freedom comes responsibility. For the person who is unwilling to grow up, the person who does not want to carry his own weight, this is a frightening prospect." She applies this statement to U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, when she should be applying it to Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. In his prestigious position, Fauci has the responsibility to give straight answers to the American public but constantly flip-flops on his advice for conquering COVID-19.

Roosevelt's advice also should apply to the left-leaning groups who tout the freedom to protest/riot, provide less funding for police and allow illegal immigration through our borders, with no thought for or acceptance of the responsibility.  These actions have caused chaos, bloodshed, murder, disease and loss of income, among other disasters, to innocent citizens trying to lead a responsible life and earn a living. So, yes, it's time for all of those groups to grow up, and carry their own weight and to accept responsibility for the chaos they have caused in our country.

Carol M. Smith.

Sharps.
