Letter: St. Louis Park should honor all adults with freedom of personal choice

To the Editor:

I am reading “D-Day” by Stephen Ambrose, the detailed history of the Allies of World War II’s mission to liberate France, beginning at the beaches of Normandy. Ambrose is clear that the courage and sacrifice of 18- to 26-year-old infantry and paratrooper soldiers, who were willing to go forward despite significant enemy fire, was the key to saving the free world from Nazism. Many died on those beaches, making the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Now there is talk at our City Council about limiting the freedom of adults who are 18- to 21-years-old. I want St. Louis Park to be a city that honors all adults with the freedom of personal choice, even if some of us may disagree with that choice. An adult is an adult is an adult.
