Last week's paper had two letters that were long on finger pointing and short on compassion. I'm not as lucky to be so perfect as those authors apparently are; I do have my flaws. Although I'm not a perfect person I strive for perfection knowing I'll never achieve it.
In the meantime I'll work darn hard to show compassion for everyone, especially those grieving for lost loved ones. I believe in times of crisis it's better to hold out an open hand instead if a pointed finger. Respect life? Perhaps we can start by respecting each other.
