To the editor:
I am an American, a veteran and a patriot. I truly love my country. However, when I read my country, the richest and most powerful nation on earth, would take food out of our children’s mouths, it fills me with a profound sadness and a very healthy anger. Have we as a nation grown so apathetic that we are content to ignore the working poor? Pretend they don’t exist? Maybe if you just turn your head and close your eyes, they will go away.
