Letter -- Elaine Alexander

Even though of Armenian descent, I (and many others) find it extremely

rude and offensive that the new culture of Armenians in our community

insist on speaking in their own language in public places. And they do

not even attempt to use a lower tone of voice. These are young and old

alike who know the English language but refuse to use it (again in

public).

In past generations, individuals were so grateful to be part of our

wonderful country that they went out of their way to learn and speak the

English language. My own family always kept the Armenian language alive

by speaking it at home, but never in public as, again, we found it to be

rude.

It seems that our children would be much more humble and better

prepared for school if more English was spoken, thus relieving some of

the unnecessary stress that has been placed on our educators.
