I was appalled and greatly distressed to read of a hate crime in Bellerose.

I live in Glen Oaks Village on the Bellerose side where these egregious and nefarious acts were perpetrated. Four cars were spray painted with Nazi swastikas and seven other cars had scribbles of hate. Our neighborhood is a melting pot of various races, nationalities and religious faiths. I just don’t understand what could possess the individual or individuals to commit these acts of hate against my neighbors.

In my opinion one thing is sure, and that is we are not born with hate but it is learned and taught in the home. That must stop! Remember this too, it takes a village to raise a child.
