Thanks for the swift kick in the pants
When I read the Letters to the Editor in the August 17 edition of the Woodinville Weekly, I was both very proud and extremely embarrassed by what was written.
The Letters from Young Readers made me feel that as parents we have to be doing something right. Then, unfortunately, I read the other letters from adults and pondered past letters and realized that these fine young people have a much clearer vision of what is important than we, the adults of the community, have.
Maybe they are are reacting to our endless preoccupation with scandal and trying to work the system for our own personal gain. Whatever the reason, I think we can be very proud of these young readers.
From one old guy, thanks for the swift kick in the pants. Keep it up.
