Speech trauma at UC Berkeley
Re “4 arrested at UC Berkeley,” Sept. 15
Four hundred years ago, young people landed on North American shores to establish colonies that might not last through the next winter. Three hundred years ago, young people forged into the forests and frontiers to establish farms to feed their families. Two hundred years ago, young people were on covered wagons moving west as “Manifest Destiny” took hold. One hundred years ago, young people embarked on troop ships to go and fight in World War I.
Today, young people at UC Berkeley flee to mental health facilities for “counseling.” And what caused the stress and therefore the need for such counseling? The words of a young man who espouses conservative thought.
These are our future leaders? These people are the ones we are going to rely on to make tough decisions down the road? We are doomed. Joseph Schillmoeller Gardena
