Saddened and disappointed

I expected so much more from our college students in their protesting of our President-elect Donald Trump.

Our grand country allows freedom of speech to every citizen, but we have seen that right abused in the violence and destruction carried out and my heart is saddened at the burning of our flag.

Whatever happened to peaceful protest and unity and respect for our flag?

I wonder what our Wounded Warriors and our military think of this action … this flag which represents our country that they have fought for — have sacrificed and died for?

I truly hope that those involved in the destruction and desecration are but a small fraction of students, and that it is not a true representation of our future leaders.

God help us, and may He continue to bless America in spite of our inhumanity and disrespect of one another.
