In the wake of hate speech at OPRF where my son is a senior, I feel compelled to send this prose poem to Wednesday Journal. I've lived in Oak Park for 20 years now. My family chose this community because of its outward commitment to the ideals of fostering diversity, and we truly love this community. Ours is a biracial and interfaith family.

I have completed watching all of the episodes of America to Me. Since no one except me subscribes to Starz, the only person I could discuss the documentary with was Marsha.

While we mourned the loss of OPRF to Brother Rice in football, no one seems to have paid attention to the second-place finish of the OPRF flag football team (ostensibly the baseball/track athletes) at Halas Hall in Lake Forest.

As advocates for the fair and safe use of friendly streets by all our neighbors who walk, roll, ride, and drive, Bike Walk Oak Park supports the Redevelopment of the Madison Street Public Infrastructure Plan, also known as the Madison Street Road Diet.

As Rabbi of West Suburban Temple Har Zion, I would like to clarify a point in the article published in the last edition of Wednesday Journal about an anti-Semitic incident at our synagogue on Sept. 30 [Local synagogues on alert following shooting, local threat, News, Nov. 7].

Having just attended the Armistice Day tribute at Scoville Park on this the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I (aka "The Great War"), I wanted to take the opportunity to thank the committee that organized this ceremony.

Who would bother to drive around in the middle of the night in order to steal signs from fellow villagers' yards? This is the question I find myself asking after the anti-consolidation signs in certain yards of northeast Oak Park, including mine, went missing the night before the election.

Wednesday's community conversation consisted of pathetic responses from OPRF administrators, a failure to address questions regarding steps being taken to ensure student safety, and constant shifting of responsibility.

Most people are reasonable and support improvements to Oak Park and River Forest High School. Reasonable people support replacing the pools. "Yes" is the answer; "how" is the question.

I experienced what I think was a "white privilege" incident the other day. I drove to the TGIF/Pier One strip mall in Oak Park — super crowded, as it was Saturday afternoon. Tons of cars pulling in and out, dropping folks off and cruising around looking for a parking spot.
