Sharon Raghavachary's column on Jan. 20 prompted me to sit behind the computer and write a letter to the opinion page.
So Republicans voted to repeal the health-care reform bill that our president had put so much heart into.
I am not sure when, maybe it was in high school or even earlier, that I learned about the hostility between Catholics and Protestants in Ireland. For me, it was hard to understand how they had carried out so much feuding between each other and fought bloody fights for centuries.
Weren't they all children of the same God and accepted Jesus as their savior?
Today, a similar scenario: a deep rooted anger prevails between two civilized parties, the Republicans and the Democrats of the United States. Again, I don't understand all the nasty attitude or venom-spewing of Republicans toward Democrats. Turn on the Fox channel and you can hear all the mean-spirited rhetoric, and how emotions run high about a much needed insurance reform that could give many Sharons one less worry in this treacherous world.
