Don’t let bad guys win

Donna O'Connor


So many people think that IHOP should be closed forever, but why should we let the bad guys win? Allowing that to happen would only further the effect that the gunman, Eduardo Sencion, had on this community. What happened there that day was horrible but it was the gunman’s deed, and it is IHOP that is being punished if it remains closed. IHOP was a popular place with a great location. Now all the employees are out of work due to no fault of their own. Some sort of memorial would be appropriate: such as an American flag and the victims’ names at the base. I believe we need to honor all those who suffered from the tragedy that day but closing IHOP only allows the terrorist to win.
