It's a matter of choice

To the Editor:

Each Memorial Day weekend my wife and I look forward to listening to the Indianapolis 500 on the radio while spending time in the yard with our dogs (yes, it was hot).

If you drive by our place during the race, you can usually hear who is running up front. We particularly enjoy all the pre-race celebrations; the singing by Jim Nabors, the playing of "Taps" and all the additional tributes to our soldiers who have paid it all in their service to America.

This year I was shocked to hear the station we were listening to go to a commercial break just as the invocation was being given. I immediately switched to a Terre Haute station to return to the broadcast. WIBQ, 98.5 FM, Terre Haute, aired the invocation. WREB, 94.3 FM, chose not to air it.

I'm glad I have the freedom to make my own choices. Those freedoms are not free; they have been paid by the blood of many courageous Americans. Eternal freedom comes from the blood of Jesus Christ; His Truth will set you free.

My name is Ed Lattanzio, and I am second.
