Letter to the editor: Vandalizing a memorial and ruining remembrance

The only tiny American flag that was not vandalized out of 2, 997 American flags. Occidental College is investigating reports of vandalism to a 9/11 memorial on its Eagle Rock campus. The memorial, consisting of 2,997 tiny American flags, was put in place in the quad area Saturday night by members of the student organization the Occidental College Republican Club, with each flag representing a victim of the Sept, 11, 2001, terror attacks.(Photo by Walt Mancini/Pasadena Star-News/SCNG)

    Well said. The destroyers of the memorial are not out for jusyice but instead are purveyors of hate

  2. Claude Slage says:

    The people who destroyed the memorial are bigots. They exibit the worst kind of hate and intolerance. I applaud the Oxy community for coming together to denounce bigotry and hopefully the responsible parties will be excluded from our community.
