Dear The San Fran Times,

I love the idea of the American Red Cross and everything they are supposed to do. I think it is a great idea to send first responders to the scene and try to help out the injured. If my city was hit by some sort of natural disaster I would greatly appreciate people coming to help out everyone. Hundreds even thousands of civilians will be saved.

Sincerely,

Brian Smith

Dear The San Fran Times,

I can’t believe indians are being forced off their land and being killed in wars just for us to take their land. I heard of a man named Sitting Bull who was a Sioux leader who fought for his land but was eventually captured and killed. It is absolutely awful it is hard to imagine that people can treat other people that way. I understand we want the land but we could settle this much calmer and less violent.

Sincerely,

H. B.
