To the Editor,
I was shocked to read the letter to the editor, “Addressing a negative column by Luke Boyd,” by Sandi Wells. Why? Because it was nearly identical to a letter I had just written. Hers was printed, while mine wasn’t. But my shock quickly changed to affirmation. Someone else had the same opinion I did! So, Dr. Boyd’s opinions have impacted others the way he has impacted me.
But at the same time we were commenting on and criticizing his previous commentary, I read his current commentary, “Some things that bother me.” I really enjoyed this one. I related with much of what he was saying, and the content was not controversial. Well said, Dr. Boyd!
Overall, the entire page was excellent. Ed Wagner’s letter expressed my viewpoint and the content of several of my previous letters, that in order to heal divisions in our country, we don’t need to continue to open old wounds and to continue to emphasize perceived differences.
The same idea applies to Marsha Blackburn’s “Critical Race Theory” commentary. We hear about this quite a bit now, but knowing what it actually is helps form accurate opinions.
Thanks to the Williamson Herald for an enjoyable and, at the same time, informative Opinion page.
