I would like to speak to the citizens of Lodi on a personal matter; it's also an American matter. I am talking about the Constitution of the United States of America. The First Amendment: What does it mean and how far does it go? Does anyone really know?
I would like to publicly voice my anger over the provocative actions of this fraudulent man of God, the Rev. Terry Jones, of Gainsville, Fla. On March 20, Mr. Jones burned the bible of the Muslim faith — the Qur'an — which has incited anti-American sentiment in the Muslim world. I thought the KKK was dead, which brings me to the point.
I'm speaking on the issue because my very near and dear nephew Dennis Gonzales Jr. just returned to Lodi fresh off one of those isolated fire bases located in the mountains of Afghanistan. Dennis — "D.J." — is home for just 10 or so days to meet his first newborn daughter and spend lifetime days with his wife, Amber.
D.J. is a proud soldier and will defend God, country and family. I guess he'll also defend the right of this reverend to place his life in further danger. I love you, D.J.
