Harmony Park is not a local threatPublished 9:51am Friday, July 5, 2013
After reading the article about Harmony Park being on the hot seat, I feel I must let my voice be heard. I bring my three children to Project Earth every year. I am what is known as an overprotective parent, but at Project Earth I feel confident that my kids are safe. The management at the park strives to maintain a safe, family-friendly atmosphere, successfully, I may add.
The remarks made by the sheriff are deliberately inflammatory. It is obvious that the agenda of the department is to shut down anything they don’t understand, including loving, peaceful, family-friendly gatherings that teach tolerance and equality. If Harmony Park is a threat to the local community, then so is the local carnival, church gatherings, etc. In this day and age, one would hope for better educated and compassionate public employees. I would be ashamed to support such a person in any manner. I hope that his pastor, minister, etc., will address this with him.
Such intolerance would not go over well at Harmony Park. Such a person would be counseled by friends and elders to be more loving and tolerant. He would be well served to attend Project Earth as a civilian and heal his heart.
