Give Ghandi a space
I can’t say it surprises me that readers have taken issue with a statue to honor Gandhi by demanding a statue of their own nationality or throwing the idea into the same lot as our poorly executed money-eating “train to nowhere.”
There seems to be no shortage of ignorant or racist people who push their own agenda at the expense of others. Gandhi was a great thinker who changed world power by nonviolent means and by speaking the truth. This town has had buildings and statues named after Ku Klux Klan and Confederate leaders for years.
My fellow readers, if you are against this privately funded statue, please take a minute and open your mind to the idea that just maybe, despite your good civic intentions, you are protesting the wrong statue. CuRRy dodson
