Flag infringes on beauty of Tenmile Range

Are people forgetting the power and beauty of the Tenmile Range? I feel sorrow for the victims of Sept. 11 and do not approve of the recent vandalism.

At the same time, I feel that a monument infringing on the natural condition of our land is unnecessary. The beauty of our environment is a large reason for living in Summit County. As an American, I understand the lives we had to sacrifice to freely enjoy this beauty.

However, this beauty was thriving thousands of years before the U.S. The overwhelming power, longevity and beauty of our land leads me to feel no one should ever change the skyline of the Tenmile. The victims of Sept. 11 do deserve a memorial, but not at the expense of our natural surroundings. Please, no more flags.
