Letter to the Editor: Lighten up

    62

    Dear Editor,

    I am writing in response to a letter entitled “Adjust Focus.”

    In it, the writer seemed to infer that trivial and comical issues seem to be of more concern to students than current events.

    Now, I have the utmost respect for our great nation, the freedoms that others died to give me, and those serving the U.S. military. Those are things that should never be trivialized or joked about.

    Yet there are so many idiosyncrasies in our little “bubble” to laugh at.

    If you can’t deal with that, then maybe you need to reexamine your focus.

    What’s not to laugh about? If they’re not attacking my rights and are not offensive, they can say what they will.

    It’s a joke. Relax. Did you ever think that “focusing on how we can bless the lives of others” might be to make someone smile after reading how great coconut soap is?
