    I would like to comment on the issue of the Second Amendment as commented on by Mr. Williams (July 3, 2014) in reply to Ms. Hagen’s original comment.

    I have always believed, deep in my heart of hearts, in the overall balance of the universe; not just in an impersonal, geological/biological, cause-and-effect kind of way, but also in an individual, what-goes-around-comes-around, karma kind of way. In my most sunny, optimistic moments, I believe that Evil has a hard time keeping up with Good, and matching it tit for tat.

    Want to learn more about a town? Go to its Farmers’ Market. As first time visitors to Decorah, as well as its Farmers’ Market, my wife and I found a lot more than dried beans and baked bread; we also found free-bees like smiles and friendly people.

    I wish to comment briefly on a letter to the editor by Joann Hagen in the Decorah Journal in the issue Thursday, June 26.

    The author states and I quote, “In America, one in three homes have a gun and nearly 1.7 million children live with a loaded, unlocked gun in the home. Thus, thousands of kids are killed or injured every year.”

    My husband Vince had Parkinson’s and used a wheelchair for many years. He could go anywhere in this city with no problems.

    We always were thankful for the way this city made this possible.

    I have just learned from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and the Brady Campaign that June 21 was Ask Day; the day that everyone should be asked, especially children, are there any guns in the home that you visit and are they safely locked up?

    In 2008 when Kristen Underwood and Lea Donhowe Lovelace opened their venture called ArtHaus in Decorah, there might have been an equal number of people in town who thought they were either heroes or fools, but six years later, who among us can doubt that their vision has made Decorah an ever more vibrant place?

    Do not enroll your children in the fall 2014 school term until Congress has made our schools safe.

    What an impressive newspaper article about Jim Fritz’s legacy to Decorah’s school music program. Having taught with all six high school retiring teachers, I know about their combined energy, skill and patience. Thanks to each of them for strengthening the importance of music, fitness, families, art, sports and agriculture.

    As we celebrate the summer solstice on June 21, this is a great time for Iowans to invest in solar energy systems for their homes, farms and businesses.

    I read Bob Watson’s letter in Thursday’s paper and felt compelled to send a letter of my own. I too, am a veteran of the Armed Forces, having served at the end of the Viet Nam conflict.

    I was reading the Decorah newspaper and saw that Dr. Remington had received a well-deserved honor. That reminded me that I had planned on sending a letter to the editor quite some time ago.

    I consider myself a rational individual. Someone who does not make snap judgments on issues or falls for the hype associated with them but rather a person who researches the issues first and then comes to an informed decision on them.
