To The Daily Sun,
We had some very tragic news happen right out on Lake Winnipesaukee. Three people lost their lives on the ice while using snowmobiles. I cannot imagine the anguish these families and friends are going through right now and I am truly so very sorry for your loss.
I have heard many comments about these accidents over these past few days. Some have been very sympathetic and others have been very judgmental. I was appalled at the specific comments toward the father who lost his 15-year-old son. Some people are actually blaming him for his own child's death! Same goes for the other two gentlemen who died, with people blaming the deceased for the "risks" they took.
I can't believe how heartless some people are. I say, who are you?! Be grateful it was not your son, husband, father, or friend. Be careful when you speak so callously about their deaths, and give your opinions so freely as if you were there or knew better than them. Someone who loved/loves them may be nearby listening. Then how would you feel?!
Again, I am truly sorry, and wish you and yours peace.
Denise C. Burke
