I was glad to see local police condemn the killing of George Floyd, but the article titled “Area police: Anger over Floyd case is justified,” in the June 13-14 edition of The Daily Star, also caused me some concern.

Let’s not sugarcoat it. Your last semester in high school has gotten demolished by a global pandemic and it is wickedly unfair. Your graduation is now a drive-thru, your prom is imaginary, and instead of spending your last semester of senior year hanging out with your friends and taking a vi…

George Floyd's death at the hands — or rather the knee — of Minneapolis police office Derek Chauvin has sparked protests nationwide, including some looting and destruction of property in my hometown of Dallas. I do not condone senseless violence, but I understand some of the rage and frustra…

When I was a child, I used to play in the woods with my friends and our BB guns. We’d go out in the surviving wilderness in the Pocono Mountains. I’d hide under a tree for hours waiting for a bird to land. A black-capped chickadee did land, and bam, I hit it in the chest. Its song stopped as…

How utterly ironic. Nurses’ Day 2020 will be remembered as the year that our nation’s nurses from Cooperstown to Chicago were being honored by fire departments for their heroism with anthems of cacophony and flashing light shows — a tribute especially poignant in the time of COVID-19.
