In defense of diversity

Regarding the May 10 letter “Bowing to diversity at our own peril,” I have only one question: When was Europe destroyed? As far as I can recall, diversity in Europe is alive and well, and its offspring spawned our very own country.

Calling upon all others to “acclimate” is the ideological goal of the terrorists the letter’s author so fears. I truly fear the direction of our great nation if we follow any path not lined with diversity and tolerance.
