Letter to the editor- Don’t give up our freedoms

To the editor:

In the aftermath of the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, Madeline Albright, our former secretary of state, has suggested that Americans compromise some of their liberties to empower government to better protect us in the future. This is the way things were done in her country of origin.

The United States and its Constitution was not formed for people who would sacrifice a bit of freedom every time a shot is fired or a bomb goes off. If we allow flag burners, assassins and terrorists to trick us into compromising our liberties, then we are playing right into their hands.
