Silent vigil is just that

Dear editor,

Dear editor,

Mike Lazare writes that he was greeted with “tight lips with no reply” on Sept 30.

Several of us gathered on Cliffe Avenue for a silent vigil. We were not there to speak with our lips only with our hearts.

With so many children being killed in and out of their mother’s womb, someone has to take a stand. We choose to do it in silence as any of us would, for a dignitary, a sports figure, our military or anyone else we consider of some importance.

We consider children as important members of humanity and that they need to be treated with the same dignity we offer other members.

So Mike, I’m glad you took notice of our silent vigil. In your last sentence you wrote “these unborn children.” Thank you for not calling them “bits of tissue.”

Jim Landry,

Comox
