Letter to the editor: Good news belongs on front page
Good news on page 1
I just wanted to thank you for putting good, kind, happy and heartwarming stories on your front page. The stories about Dylan Tetil talking to the elderly gentleman at Eat’n Park (“Rostraver Eat’n Park waiter serves up simple act of kindness to WWII veteran,” Aug. 19, TribLIVE), the Hempfield marching band going to Terry Ranieri’s house to perform a special concert (“Hempfield band, community show support for Terry Ranieri, their biggest fan,” Aug. 20, TribLIVE), the great story after Ranieri’s passing (“Terry Ranieri, beloved Hempfield community member, dies at age 64,” Aug. 22, TribLIVE) and the story about the caregivers who granted Carmen Amelio’s wish to go to his wife’s grave site once more (“Hospice workers grant Harrison man’s wish to visit his wife’s grave,” Sept. 5, TribLIVE) are just a few. These are the kind of stories people want to see on the front page, not buried somewhere inside the paper, where the stories about shootings, killings, politics, etc. should be.
There are many, many more good people in this world than bad, and we need to hear about them and their good deeds. Please continue to honor them.
