How Others See Us

February 05, 2003

Regarding U.S. District Judge William Young's comments at Richard Reid's sentencing (Jan. 31): Young's comment that Reid's actions were based on Reid's hatred of America's freedoms is a sad misconception that is echoed all over this country -- that the world hates us because we are free.

Quite to the contrary, the world loves and respects us because we are free. It hates us because we are often arrogant, thoughtless and unappreciative of the great freedom that we have.
