Re: Educate in order to eradicate terrorism, Jan. 15 editorial.

This is an excellent editorial, especially the last line:

“And we members of the public must educate ourselves, so that we do not create the kind of terror we hope to eradicate.”

Total freedom of speech or action could well result in taking away someone else’s freedom.

We need to be able to express our opinion in a respectful and sensitive way, but not free to insult, disrespect or hurt others.

That only accomplishes resentment, anger and hatred.

As your editorial stated so well: “We members of the public must educate ourselves so that we do not create the kind of terror we hope to eradicate.
