Letter to the editor: Inconvenience isn’t a tragedy

Posted

Recently I read that Douglas County Commissioner Abe Laydon was appealing to the health department to reopen the pools because “it’s a tragedy that pools are empty.”

A tragedy is when more than 100,000 Americans have died in four months from complete mismanagement of a pandemic by the federal government. A tragedy is that our families, friends and neighbors continuing to be killed and discriminated against because of the color of their skin. A tragedy is the ongoing annual deaths of more than 40,000 people by guns due to lack of common-sense gun control.

I’d encourage our Douglas County commissioners and Mr. Laydon to get their priorities straight when it comes to what’s really important. A closed pool is an inconvenience, not a tragedy.
