Dear Editor:

Regarding the parades people are running, celebrating their country of origin and flying only foreign flags, I must say I find it disturbing. At the very least, American flags should be more prominent. I especially dislike the idea of people flying only foreign flags on their cars or in front of their homes. My feeling is, if it was so great, why did you leave? Stay then and try to improve it.

When some of my foreign friends knocked the U.S.A., I always reminded them that you can feel free to criticize or complain about things in the U.S.A., just as I am with this letter. But if you have hateful things to say about the U.S.A., always remember, unlike many other countries, it’s very easy to leave. My parents were immigrants and both felt the same way.
