To the Editor:

Society today has evolved in a way that indirectly supports isolation for the individual. Everything from television, social media and even the workplace make being alone and secluded easy and enticing. This is hurtful to society because people lose touch with each other, and in turn, themselves, together causing major changes that go unrecognized until it is too late. When an area shows the ability to come together in unison to fight for a worthy cause, it gives hope to the idea that not everyone in America has succumbed to this common societal issue. The people of Western Tidewater have proven this possible, fighting for multiple causes, with one of the most memorable being their fight against the Outlying Landing Field. People are dependent upon each other for so much more than they realize, and if the people of Western Tidewater refused to come together on this issue, nothing would have been accomplished. Therefore, though I am not stating my opinion on the extension of 460, I agree that if the people of Western Tidewater want to make their voices heard, they have to fight together in unison, as they know best.
