BENTON HARBOR - For Grand Island, N.Y. resident Alice Gerard, there are many compelling reasons to oppose America’s use of drone aircraft - starting with the personal side.
“In my opinion, there are two kinds of people in this world - there are my friends, and friends that I haven’t met yet. I can’t see killing my friends, especially the ones that I haven’t met yet,” Gerard said.
