Diana Eubank: Take a breath
April 1, 2013
Wouldn't it be great if we all could just take a breath and a moment, slow down the hypocrisy and think about things?
As to all the letters against Sheriff Wiggins: I, for one, support him in conducting his department as he should under the law. Where is the outrage that he was not having his department enforce the law making adultery a crime? How many of the outraged citizens complaining about his intention to not enforce the new gun laws are even aware that up until just late March 2013, adultery was still against the law (as far as Colorado law was concerned)? Where is the outrage about his department not enforcing federal drug laws?
Regardless of your political affiliation, race, gender, orientation, religious (or atheistic) views, two rules we can all use to conduct ourselves every moment of our lives are: "Do unto others as they would do unto you," and "If you cannot say something nice, don't say anything at all."
I am not happy with the new gun laws, but as a law-abiding citizen, I will follow them while still making my views against them known. If you, as a law-abiding citizen, are happy with them, do your part by following them and by reporting your concerns if you think someone has violated them. I know Steamboat is a community of neighbors who look out for one another and never has a problem with turning a blind eye toward things.
Go out and enjoy a cup of coffee with someone that disagrees with you, as you politely agree to disagree. See what common ground you do share. Work from there.
