Letter: People shouldn’t disparage fellow human beings

People shouldn’t disparage fellow human beings

In response to the Nov. 7 letter writer’s assessment of Harry Bliss’s offensive cartoon regarding disabled seniors, I could not agree more with him.

Mr. Bliss, your life can change in an instant. If you really think you are not vulnerable to becoming disabled you are so wrong. My very healthy 61-year-old husband suffered a stroke and is now totally disabled. How old are you? Disabilities can happen at any age.

The only shame that should be felt is by those who considered it appropriate to disparage their fellow human beings who may require additional care. Or perhaps whose society’s health care system is focused on profit over effective long term care and recovery.

How about showing some compassion?
