Re: “Scenes From the March for Our Lives Rally in Montpelier

Vermont Yankee power plant was a similar post traumatic threat to all in Vermont. The school drills left many children frightened. A nuclear disaster is no comparison to what guns can do. Private gun owners need to also lock their guns up away from criminals and the vulnerable. I believe in the right to bear arms. Not sure how to stop criminals. Many 18 year olds go in the military. And many youth are taught to hunt at very young age. Why should all 18 year olds be restricted from possessing guns. All youth in Vermont must take a hunter safety class to hunt. There are different classes in bow and arrow as well as turkey hunting. I required all three of my daughters to take this training. Would it be wise to pass a law for everyone similar to driver's education to drive. Require a gun safety course before being able to purchase a gun. A car is also a weapon.

Must we have advertising forced down our throats just to look at some pictures?

Re: “Photos: A Burlington Vigil and Protest for Alton Sterling and Philando Castile

Black lives matter doesn't insinuate that black lives are the only lives that matter. By focussing on that people miss the message that is being presented about social and criminal injustices. The people involved in this vigil held space for all of the officers who were killed by snipers in Dallas as well as for Sterling, Castile, and the countless other
humans who have suffered at the hand of an unjust system. This movement is not about hate and causing more divide among us all.

Re: “A Reporter Gathers With the Rainbow Family

I loved reading Mark Davis' report on the Rainbow Gathering near Mount Tabor ("Happy Campers," June 29). Having been to four previous Rainbow Gatherings since 1985, the traditional Rainbow greeting -- "Welcome Home!" -- had special meaning for me this year, as this was my first Rainbow Gathering in my home state, having lived in Vermont for 22 years; I still haven't quite come down from the emotional and spiritual high I experienced at the Gathering's Peace Circle on the Fourth of July.

I'm a 63-year-old African-American who came of age during the heyday of the original "flower children" of the late '60s and early '70s. The hippies I first encountered at New York's Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village as a 17-year-old in the summer of 1970 forever altered the course of my life; I've been a hippie in my heart and soul ever since.

It was at the 1985 Rainbow Gathering in Missouri that I met a gay French-Canadian Rainbow from Montreal with whom I had a relationship that lasted 21 years until we amicably parted in 2006. At this year's Gathering, I reconnected with a friend I had not seen in 20 years, a friend whom I had a huge crush on -- and, unbeknownst to me 20 years ago, had an equally huge crush on me.

And although I've never had children, I nonetheless came face to face during the Peace Circle with a young man who bore such an uncanny resemblance to my teen-aged self that I was overwhelmed with the feeling that he could have been my son -- or even my grandson, as he was just 18.

There's a reason why they're called the Rainbow Family. And I thank God they're still here after almost half a century.

Re: “A Reporter Gathers With the Rainbow Family

Just so you know the forest DOES not belong to the Leos it is ALL Americans right to gather in the National Forest..That one line in this story pissed me off big time..
