Letter: Berry is a fitting representative of the United States


This is in response to Fred Wilferth’s letter to the editor about the protest by Olympic runner Gwen Berry.

So, Mr. Wilferth, let me get this straight; Gwen Berry should be thankful to live in a nation where free expression and disapproval of the government is allowed, but how dare she express her dissent?

Having a defiant voice but being criticized for using it is hardly a freedom of expression.

Gwen is a role model and a patriot. I’m thankful the whole world will get to see Gwen as a representative of America.
