Take a look at both sides

When I read the first paragraph of Eileen Hennessy’s Lake Huntington News, I was taken aback. She said “what a sad and sick world we live in” because of the ambush in Dallas. There is no doubt the killing of the innocent police of Dallas was a heinous act, carried out by a maniac. And then she stated, “all lives matter.”

I would like to ask Ms. Hennessy, where in her opening paragraph were the names of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two black men who were killed at point-blank range by rogue police officers days prior to the Dallas shootings? When she mentioned “all lives matter,” was she purposely not mentioning the movement, Black Lives Matter?

Perhaps Ms. Hennessy needs to look inside herself and try to see both sides of what’s happening in the United States of America. Maybe one day all lives will matter because organizations like Black Lives Matter will not have to exist anymore.

A lovely market in Narrowsburg

I decided to go to the farmers’ market in Narrowsburg. I was expecting it to be in the school, since I didn’t think there was a place for it outside, but was mistaken. Walked towards the tents and saw picnic tables, beautiful landscaping, music and food from the barbeque so you could sit and eat there. Really, really beautiful. If you have not been you must go. Great job.
