Virtue in not looking down on people unless you're helping them up

To The Daily Sun,
Kindness is a language we all can speak. Those who throw "mud balls" at others lose ground as Bernadette Loesch did in her recent Daily Sun letter dated March 12th. Loesch, a frequent writer to The Sun, mocked others for submitting articles to The Sun not to her liking.
If Loesch wants to promote what she believes are positive steps and policies by our U.S. president, she can do so freely and openly as she has for quite some time. But before heaping discredit on other people for what she perceives as one-sided viewpoints, Loesch should first take a look at her own progression of letters to The Sun. In doing so she might be a lot less condemning.
This letter isn't going to change how mature adults put forth their political views in public. Hopefully, however, The Sun's younger readers will take notice and see the virtue of never looking down on people unless they're helping them up.
The crux of today's writing is to make known that no one should be discouraged from sharing personal views on government practices and policies. I don't ever recall reading anything Loesch wrote that I might agree with, but it would never occur to me to send a letter to The Sun to denigrate her.
Diversion of thought is vital to every community. It promotes an exchange of ideas that often lead to better choices and better living. Anyone seeking to change someone's political views should do so by writing passionately on ideas they espouse. Intellectual diversion warrants encouragement not denunciation.
If history has taught people one thing it is that "triumph of evil" comes when good men say nothing. Tony Boutin, Steve Earle, Dale Channing-Eddy, Russ Wiles and Bob Meade ought to be hailed not assailed for taking precious time in submitting letters to the editor.
Long ago I learned that when you really like someone be sure to tell them because sometimes you only get one chance. So today is my chance to tell Tony Boutin, Steve Earle, Dale Channing-Eddy, Russ Wiles and Bob Meade how much I respect them and how much I enjoy reading their Sun articles.
