To the editor:
I want to commend the writer of an open letter that I read in the July issue of “O&AN” (Vol.5 # 7, 2006, page 54). The letter headlined ‘A straight ally’s open letter to Gov. Bredesen’ was a refreshing and hopeful letter. TK Hill of Nashville did an excellent job of voicing the view of the community. We need more people like him to help our community’s voice be heard. If more people took the time to let the leaders of our government know just who this marriage amendment would affect then maybe they would pass laws that would keep the citizen safe, after all isn’t that what they are paid to do?
I just wanted to take the time to thank TK Hill, and I hope to see more good-hearted people speak out. I also want to thank the staff of “O&AN” for sharing the thoughts of so many people with your publication. You do an excellent job. Keep up the great work.
