LETTER: Positive things to be learned from longboarder's death
I wish to express my thoughts regarding the publicity that was created by the tragic death of Dustin Mackenzie.
Some of my friends feel that the publicity has gone too far.
I do not agree. There have been some very positive things as a result of the publicity:
– If even one youth buys and wears a helmet, there is a possibility it could save a life.
– Organ donation is a fantastic legacy for a family to bless others and help ease their pain.
– If one individual knew Dustin very well, this tragedy might be what it takes to put them on the road to eternal life.
Losing a child is a heartbreaking tragedy. I honestly feel that the way his family is dealing with their loss will result in God using this to help others.
