Most disturbing

In every level of society, wealthy, poor or in between, there are the greedy, selfish, lazy, spineless, apathetic wannabes

Editor, The News:

Re: Real moral crisis in the world is indifference (Letters, Oct. 2).

Dr. Dennis Hall, M. Ed. Ph. D., has a very dark and depressive view of humanity.

He places the greedy, clever, selfish and influential millions who throw crumbs to the mentally lazy, spineless, and apathetic who wallow in it and distance themselves from the poor.

I’m curious what group Dr. Hall is in.

In every level of society, wealthy, poor or in between, there are the greedy, selfish, lazy, spineless, apathetic wannabes.

In every level of society there are the self-sacrificing, hard-working, brave, eager to better society.

Millions of wealthy, middle and poor support all manner of charity, devoting their time and such as they have to the needy.

No matter their material wealth, some might not have much, but they are not poor.

It is disturbing that Dr. Hall is in the education field.
