These Deaths are Unacceptable

James Foley

You may have heard of the brutal killing of yet another American non-combatant by ISIS. That is two now recently. I’m not going to rail against the President. I am going to beg our federal delegation, and the White House, to formulate some plan to fight this tactic. Surely something can be done. We all should take this personally. One of our nation’s greatest strengths used to be a sense in the world that if we were hurt, they had to fight all of us. Our military alone is not a deterrent. The will and resolve of the American people is. Before we castigate the administration, let’s look at ourselves. Have we written to our Representative in Congress, our Senators, the White House? Have there been rallies that can be shown on the news? As a constituency, have we let our leaders know that we care? To the rest of the world, America seems silent. It seems they can get away with it. That has to change, and we have to help that change occur. Call a radio station, WCAX, WMUR, WYCN, write to your paper. Write or call all of your elected officials. Tell those who can make your word public that you’re mad as hell and you’re nSteven Sotloffot going to take it any more. Begin to make some noise and let the world know that we do not allow this.

James Foley attended Kingswood Regional High School in Wolfeboro. He was only 40 when these animals killed him.
Steven Sotloff graduated from Kimball Union Academy. He was only 31 when these animals killed him.

These are our guys who were killed. This is local, and it is personal. They were not soldiers. Tell somebody, anybody, that this is unacceptable. Begin the noise so that our government has the tool it needs to fight effectively… your will.
