I grew up in Sheldon, Iowa. I graduated from Sheldon High School in 1983. It was a peaceful and beautiful small American town and I enjoyed my childhood there very much. Everyone I knew was kind and nice to one another despite any differences we may have had.

It saddens me to see such vitriol as was published in the ‘Letters to the Editor’ section of the June 5 N’West Iowa REVIEW entitled “Don’t blame me, I voted for Trump.”

It saddens me even more that a local paper I once enjoyed reading would publish a letter that called for the killing of fellow citizens.
