Letter: Letter writer seems cantankerous
Thanksgiving is always an especially nice time to remember all the things we are thankful for.
Some people have to look a little harder to find those things in Rowan County; however, we all have clean running water, no one is bombing our towns and homes, leaving us to flee to a refugee camp, most people have enough food to eat and if not, there are shelters where warmth and food are provided, and there is medicine available.
I am so thankful for these things and many, many more.
This year I have read a plethora of letters to the editor from Whitey Harwood. After, his latest one (Nov. 20) concerning the free meals for veterans at K&W cafeteria, I felt compelled to write.
Mr. Harwood, what are you thankful for? I’m sure you read the Salisbury Post editorial page and so I just wanted to let you know how someone who has never had the pleasure of meeting you, has envisioned you. I see a cynical, cantankerous and for some odd reason old man with lots of time on his hands.
I’m sure there are plenty of places to volunteer (schools, hospitals, homeless shelter), to make this county even better.
If you choose to do this, please write a letter to the editor and let the citizens of the county know about your experience. I will be waiting to read that letter.
