To the Editor:
I just wanted to let Jill Holter know that I thoroughly enjoyed her article, “Let’s be comfortable with change,” in the July 11 paper. She is thoughtful, articulate and the article is so well written.
It doesn’t negatively affect us to embrace a new name of a lake, or address someone as they prefer to be addressed, be it they/them or whatever. In fact, it shows that we care about them.
It never occurred to me that that might be suicide prevention which makes me sad but I will remember this going forward.
Thank you for such a great read and I believe you’ve touched more people than you will ever know with this article.
