Shirley Simpson: More important things


To the editor:

In this world we live in today, where there are jobs lost, homes gone, lost and hungry children, abandoned animals, crime on the rise, and drugs tearing apart families, why are there so few to reach out and help?

But, hundreds will attend meetings with their hackles raised, voices rising to a fevered pitch, letters written by the dozen, and even the TV news brought to town over something by comparison as inconsequential as what to do with the deer.

It makes one wonder.

You made an excellent point. One of the best ways to ignore serious problems is to distract yourself with relative trivia.

The wildlife may be trivia to you, but to me, they mean the difference of a quality life or not.

Nature is medicine to the soul, and without them what is left, but the disease of man.
