    "Dismayed and Disillusioned" On Tuesday evening standing before the Piqua City Commission I stated after reading cousin Henry Allen Laine's "Thirty Year's of Peace" that was recited at Berea College in 1893, that he would be DISMAYED and DISILLUSIONED at the level of progress in our society. The article about the Military VETERAN having his mic cut shows just how RIGHT I am! See my comments starting at about 23:22 into the meeting. I thank the Mayor for not cutting my mic time and urge our community not to think about it or talk about it but ACT upon it in Doing the RIGHT Thing!

    Heard this was an American Legion event. As a member this is embarrassing and unacceptable.

    How rude they turned the Mic off. I'm white an never knew this piece of history.. it's atrocious that we don't get to learn something worthy of black people that served in all of our wars. And how they invented almost everything but yet white also stole all of that and credit for it. We should be ashamed of that. I have a mixed grandchild and try to teach and make him aware of all the awesome things people of color have contributed!
