Disengaged need to wake up
The June 9 letter deriding the “mob” mentality of demonstrators as well as Gov. Pat McCrory’s view that “outsiders” are responsible for protests are a cause for great concern.
These folks are our co-workers, our friends and our relatives. I admire their willingness to put themselves on the line for their belief that this current legislature is acting in alarming ways and taking North Carolina in a very regressive direction. I applaud the actions of peaceful disobedience and would hate to think what it would be like to live in a society where this would not be possible.
Many residents are disengaged from the political process and need to wake up and prepare to vote this fall and in 2014.
