It is with a heavy heart that I write this opinion piece. I have never put up a political sign before, but in light of seeing signage for the last four years I thought it would be my right to put up my opinion — on private property — for the last four months of the election cycle.

I was hoping it would be respected, as I have respected my community and neighbors' right to post theirs. Sadly, I was wrong, as on the first day it was defaced and the second day it was destroyed.

I am writing to ask you to consider, as signs go up, to consider everyone's right to free speech, and to think how you would feel if someone took down or defaced your sign, flag or any other political representation.

We do live in divided times, but we need not be disrespectful of others' opinions. we can disagree without being disagreeable.

A little respect goes a long ways.

Is it just a Trump sign that "triggers" someone - or is it all signs?


Where in the letter was any politician named??
