Remember those on the high road

Your column of March 19 gave us opportunity to think about sharing.

Your column of March 19 gave us opportunity to think about sharing.

That is always a good topic. Sharing comes in many forms; its highest level is perhaps unconditional love, helping neighbours, all the way down to sharing money. Many of your readers responded thoughtfully, whatever their opinion. Their comments were encouraging to read. I ask you and your readers to remember them.

There were a few comments with quite the opposite of unconditional love and other altruistic feelings. These comments were not simply disagreeing with your writing. They were personal attacks. This type of angry response is unnecessary. There is no need for you or your readers to remember this type of comment. Remember instead those who took the ‘high road,’ whether they agreed or disagreed with your sharing theme.

Your column of March 26 quoting Fulghum’s book was a beautiful response; share everything and say sorry when you have offended someone. You are a good editor.
