To the Editor: Mission of Holocaust museum praised

Around 5 p.m. last Wednesday, I heard the horrible news of the shooting and killing of a security guard at Washington's Holocaust museum -  apparently the act of an 88-year-old white-supremacist and Holocaust denier.
A few minutes later, as I read the Sentinel-Tribune's "Opinion" page, I was greatly saddened to read a Bowling Green resident's letter stating that the "people of Israel don't like (America). They never did and never will." While his letter began with a seemingly civil tone, his closing paragraphs certainly serve as a stark reminder that stereotypes and negative generalizations are alive and well in our world.
 I hope that the people of our community - in particular the parents and role models and leaders of our community - will take time to share in the mission of the Holocaust museum, which encourages its visitors to "reflect upon the moral and spiritual questions raised by the events of the Holocaust as well as their own responsibilities as citizens of a democracy."
