Dear Editor,

I am sad to see all the young lives being lost today. Since I am a father of eight children and a seventh grandchild on the way, I feel that I have a big stake in all of this.

I think there are areas in society that can be improved on. Parents have to teach their children tolerance and not hate. Abe if there were more tolerance there would be less bullying in school and out. When I was in grade school, if we had a disagreement, we would go way out away from the school and settle our differences. But of course we didn’t have hand held communication devices that would could talk behind each other’s back with either. I’m thinking that is might help to take a time out and think about what a person is saying before they respond to a “could be” hateful comment to be a friend, if people could only practice this along with more tolerance then it might be a happier place to live.

I’m sure God wouldn’t want us to pick and choose who we are going to be nice to. Of children are being bullies in school and they tell a parent, maybe the parent can go sit in the child’s class and observe what’s going on there. I did that once and all I had to do is look at the little boy that was bothering my daughter and he didn’t do it anymore. May be a little more communication between parents and children and a little more involvement with what’s going on in their lives.

Also health care people have to be careful what they name so of these new illnesses. Some of the names I’ve heard sound like they could cause some problem with children at school being teased.

There is so much that needs to be done that it just bewilders me on what the answer is, praying is good but I think there has to be more action taken too.
