Trapped in America

Dear Editor:I rarely watch TV anymore since its obvious that whoever owns the media has corrupted it beyond belief and is using television as an opiate for the masses (as is pretty much anything electronic these days). However, when I visited a friend recently, I saw an image of someone attempting to construct a literal fence around America’s borders. HELLO!? Is anyone else frightened by the implications of building walls around America? I sure as hell am! If you haven’t read the book, “The Handmaid’s Tail” by Margaret Atwood, or seen the movie with Natasha Richardson as Kate, I suggest you buy it, rent it, and wake up.Anything that anyone can dream up in their imagination can be manifested in reality. Wake up to the subtle signs before it’s too late. Oh, and turn off your TVs; better yet, throw them out and get out into nature and reconnect to what is real and listen to the voice within, and create some art while you’re at it – while we’re still a relatively “free society.” Kathryn PrestonAspen
