Goffstown News Editorial on Laura
MacKenzie was Rude and Ignorant
I don’t have "mixed
emotions" over the Aug. 10 Goffstown News editorial titled "Relief and
anger over Laura Mackenzie." My opinion is that the writer is ignorant,
rude and needs to take a course in understanding and wisdom.
Thought you, no doubt, are older than Laura, you lack the rational faculties, the intelligence, that a person in your position should have.
In a world where so many grownups lack prudent judgment, how dare you criticize Laura for leaving home?
There are many 18-year-olds in 2006 who are frustrated because of our chaotic world. Tell me that you made no mistakes when you were 18 and I won’t believe you.
Laura’s past shows her intelligence, and with time she will show wisdom, for she has understanding and loving parents who welcomed her home without a word of arrogance as you wrote.
Welcome home, Laura. This experience will make you wise and understanding when you have children of your own.
Remember one thing: Everyone you know and those you don’t know have made mistakes. Stand tall, you’ll have a great life.
God bless you and your family.
