Whatever Happened to "We the People"


To the Editor,

What began as my opposition to a  bill passed by the House of Representatives that would prevent states from requiring package labels to indicate the presence of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, evolved into an open letter to the governing bodies of our nation regarding so very many issues plaguing society...

What a disgrace. What an abuse of power, yet again, by those elected by the people for the people.

WE THE PEOPLE. We the people. Whatever happened to that?

Our politicians need to reflect on the honest motives behind their choices before implementing their will on us, on our children.  Where exists honor in a life not guided by honesty, fairness, and kindness to all? We want honorable legislators, honorable government.

We the people want clean drinking water across our nation. We the people want to know what is in our food and where it comes from. We the people want to protect our children. We the people want to save the animals. We the people want to heal our planet. We the people want government to promote the general welfare. We the people want our elected officials to remember we elected you to protect our rights and freedoms.

I beg you, stand beside us, hold the image of our nation's children at the front of your mind and in the light of your conscience when you make decisions on behalf of we the people. You, and those like you, will become a beacon of hope and justice for we the people.

Imagine a Chatham Toboggan Ride from the Top of Fairmount Avenue to Main Street

Did you know….
there was a time when Chatham kids could ice skate from downtown Chatham all the way to Florham Park? And that a toboggan ride could last from the top of Fairmount Avenue down to Main Street and beyond?

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...

To the Editor,

I told my daughter I needed to write about gun violence. Know what she told me? “Mom, be sure you’re not too polarizing. People won’t listen.” She’s right. At age eleven she’s figured out that we adults need to be reminded how to speak to one another in order to fix a problem. But I have hope and belief that we can fix that discourse in our ...
