|To the Editor: BG woman asks for more courtesy and kindness|

Where have respect, courtesy, kindness and tolerance gone? My heart aches because of the vicious attitudes in today's politics and in our society.
In national politics, it seems that every action or statement elicits vile responses from persons with opposing views. Some of the letters in the Sentinel Tribune pre-election and after displayed this same disdain to those having differing opinions.
Now tonight, 11/13/13, I read Dr. LeRoy Lloyd's letter "disagreeing" with Dr. Feeman. His opposing view about gun rights did not necessitate a vicious posture and demeaning words ("baloney, so-called, ignorance, foolishness") toward the letter writer. Dr. Lloyd's last paragraph reflects the increasing prevalence of blowing statements out of proportion if it further reduces a person's dignity.
I say, lighten up, deal with others respectfully!
