Letter to the Editor - Dubro 6-24

 To the Editor:

I know very little about Smoky Heuston or the Dakota Provisions operation, but the interpretation of the memo published in the June 19 edition of the Plainsman as, “pressuring employees to come to work while ill,” seems out of context.

COVID-19 is certainly a threat to our society, but perhaps a greater threat is the tendency to villainize each other for any perceived trespass.

In 1858 President Abraham Lincoln stated, “A house divided against itself, cannot stand.”  More recently, “we are all in this together” is an often quoted phrase.  May we all recognize the truth of these two statements and live accordingly.  If we continue to villainize each other, how long before we are all labeled as villains?
