To the editor:
This is for whoever took the concrete eagle statue from the backyard.
What was the reason for taking something that wasn't yours? Do you need a Christmas gift and don't have the money to buy one? Did you take it because another person dared you to? Did you take it because you had been drinking and thought it was "smart?" Or maybe you needed something to sell so you could support a habit. If it's money you need, get off your rear end and get a job!
Do you know you took it from an 81-year-old Korean War vet, who was proud of that eagle as well as the flag that flies above it and what they both represent?
Whether you realize it or not someone did see you take it and know exactly who you are. Someday you will meet "Him."
Think about it.
