Letter: Re: the July 5. article “Appreciations, not pies, are what Southern Arizona firefighters need”

  • Comments

I was disappointed and surprised at the article "Appreciations, not pies, are what Southern Arizona firefighters need." Since when is an act of kindness criticized in the press? Those brave people up on the mountain need all of the support they can get, including a gift of pie from some caring teens.

It's not the gift, per se, but the gesture and thought and caring that went into that gesture. I can't imagine how crestfallen those teens were to see in print that their efforts were not appreciated. Well, they were certainly appreciated by me and, I would imagine, many others.
