Race discussion deserves public forum
Letter to editor

Editor, Having grown up just south of the Mason-Dixon line, my childhood life experiences were fully integrated. Upon reaching the age of majority, I was off to experience the world starting with the civil-rights movement, then several years of war and the associated inhumanity of mankind against their brethren and the pain and poverty it creates. This was followed by many years in different states and countries observing life.
Life is in the eyes of the beholder.
I’ve known the Gilliard family for many years. Ms. Jackie and I shared backyard property lines in Hinesville from the early ’80s until we moved to Trade Hill. Ricky and I worked closely together for many years at the recreation department while my sons were maturing.
Although this medium is sufficient as a starting point, if our elected officials believe the previously stated problems are so severe they need attention, perhaps it’s time to move this discussion to a forum where all the public can participate. I’d recommend the Dorchester Village Civic Center initially.
Just because there may be thunder/lightning storms in Bryan or Tattnall counties doesn’t mean there aren’t blue skies in Liberty County.
Thank you for this opportunity to respond.
