To the editor:

Recently, as I watched a TV show on a national network, I heard the phrase ``Our dues have to be paid.'The discussion was centered around the word ``our,' which I felt referred to all of us in America. We all have a heritage to live up to. Regardless of our believed heritage, we are all Americans, born, bred and educated in the American way of life.

Why must there be a distinction in our lives, i.e., music, athletics, intellectual abilities or whatever? Why can't we work toward a common goal in life? The betterment of all mankind.
