Emblem thief mars Make a Wish dream
My son just recently had his Ford Mustang refurbished as a wish granted by the Make a Wish Foundation. He was diagnosed with brain cancer in April 2007, and the journey has been long. On Friday afternoon, May 1, he along with his girlfriend attended the Relay for Life at the fairgrounds here in Salisbury. When he returned to get into his car that evening, someone had pried off the Ford emblem from the back of his car.
It takes a low-down rotten person to do such a thing, and all I have to say is I hope you are enjoying that emblem. I hope you felt very important doing such a thing, especially at the Relay for Life where most people who attend have suffered cancer, are suffering from cancer or know of somone who has had the awful disease.
My heart goes out to you, you desperate thief! You better hope and pray that you never have to walk down the road that my son has had to go down. Cancer is no fun and neither is dealing with a low down thief!

Angel among us
Regarding the May 4 article “Good Samaritan helps save a life, makes a friend”:
Alyssa Florida is my fifth-grade AIG teacher, and I am fortunate to have her. She is always there if we have a problem or need help. She is caring and compassionate. When she told me about Anne McIntyre, I was speechless. Ms. Florida saved someone’s life, and I am very proud to call her my teacher. She is the kind of person that would go out of her way to do almost anything for someone. She is proof that there are truly angels among us.

Words of support
Rowan County Literacy Council’s sixth annual Scrabble Scramble was a success, both as a fun evening and as a fundraiser.
Many thanks to each of the Scrabble players, to the individuals unable to attend who provided their monetary support to the evening, and to the individuals and merchants who provided prizes for our raffle.
We are most appreciative of the continuing support of our community as our volunteers work with our students to improve the skills necessary to improve their lives in the 21st century.

Objectionable cartoon
Mark Brincefield’s “cartoon” in the Sunday Salisbury Post is callous, cruel, insensitive and sickening. This is an appalling example of poor editorial judgment.
