Shame On O’Leary

Dear Editor:

I would like the opportunity to set the record straight. Our Christmas display in Neponsit Beach should be seen for what it really is. This display is not for personal grandeur. It is for the children in our community to enjoy the Christmas spirit. Almost every child in the Rockaway community has come by and enjoyed the display, but more important the people of Rockaway have come together and raised more than $13,000 for a disease that effects millions of our children. This is the one true meaning of giving.

Our family does not take any tax deductions nor do we benefit form our hard work, other than seeing smiles on the children’s faces. All donations go directly to Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. This is a way for a family that had been touched by this awful disease to do good and try to make a difference in finding a cure. Shame on you Sean O’Leary for passing judgement on a family you know nothing about. I would rather disappoint you next year than the children of Rockaway and those inflicted with juvenile diabetes.
