Don’t lose sight of freedoms in response

Published Apr 29, 2017 at 4:00pm

The cancellation of conservative Ann Coulter’s speaking engagement at the University of California, Berkeley, is a complicated situation that involves many people and money regarding public safety.  She has a right to speak and others have a right to protest.

We are fortunate to live in a country that consistently honors freedom of speech, religion, press, assembly, petition; the right to bear arms, to own property, equal justice and more.

Hopefully this Berkeley/Coulter situation will be fairly handled in a way that safely protects these freedoms for all concerned, and her message will reinforce the wonderful freedoms that she, and all Americans, enjoy.
