I agreed 100 percent with Navy Master Chief (retired) Michael E. Knopf. Forget the June 30 event and celebrate Independence day on July 4. June 30th is not Independence Day - it is not a day of any significance. A so called "Independence Day Parade and Fireworks" on June 30 will be meaningless and a waste of time.
To the Editor
I am a citizen of The United States of America, born and raised to celebrate the date of our Independence on the actual date the Deceleration of Independence was signed by our Founding Fathers. This date was July 4, 1776. It has been celebrated every year after on the 4th of July, in every City and State in this United States, on every farm, city, village and country park, and every mansion, townhouse, residence, and shanty since.
The Dalles Oregon has thrown sand in the faces of every serviceman and woman, who has served to keep this country free by picking an arbitrary date to celebrate the Fourth of July.
I will not attend the June 30th celebration nor will do any shopping in any of the businesses who have supported the decision of the city council to hold the parade and fireworks on the 30th of June.
I read the Deceleration of Independence as a school girl and have honored the citizens who have fought and died, or came home whole or crippled in mind and body, every year of my 73 years on this earth. I am ashamed to be a resident of a city that will not show the respect due them. I will celebrate on the Fourth with my family and friends with fireworks, BBQ, and A toast to our country. I only hope the rest of the country doesn't take away our citizenship in this great nation and build a wall around The Dalles for being so unpatriotic.
The Dalles Or.
