Lingle told reporters yesterday that she had "never experienced the level of rudeness" as she did appearing before a largely hostile crowd of 1,000 at the Kauai War Memorial Convention Center Thursday. Members of Lingle's staff said besides boos and jeering, members of the audience cursed Lingle and shouted obscenities at her.
"I have been going to public hearings for 25 years, but I have never seen the personal rudeness that went on not just against people who were there to share information, but to their own fellow residents," Lingle said.]

Whether you agree or not that this event was a precursor to the ongoing war this country is presently involved in, take time each day to think about the loss of our young men and women called on to serve, and of those returned to us with broken bodies and minds. Think about the collateral strife to the many lives as a result of this war and give thought to the parents of these young warriors. Although difficult, try to understand what they as parents are going through, and hope they gain comfort in knowing their loss was not in vain if there is a positive outcome to this war. And no matter how difficult, remind yourself that not all Muslims are radical extremists.
Lastly, think about how you will live this day, for it may be your last.
