With the passing of our country’s patriotic veterans who served to protect our country since World War II, I fear that patriotism will soon wane. Instead of embracing our country’s founding principles, left-leaning interests proclaim that we are a racist country that lacks greatness.

The article on noncitizenship of people born in American Samoa (“Land of noncitizens,” Star-Advertiser, Nov. 28) should have been annotated by your newspaper staff to correct an error, an error worthy of inclusion in Bob Sigall’s columns on ignorance about Hawaii.

As we mourn the victims of yet another attack on the LGBTQ community in Colorado Springs this month, we should avoid considering it an isolated incident. This was a foreseeable consequence of a deliberate and ongoing dehumanization campaign. From message boards and social media, to classrooms, churches and statehouses, the LGBTQ community is constantly made into a target of violence and hate, even here in Hawaii.
