Crash Site Is Hallowed Ground

Crash Site Is Hallowed Ground

Dear Editor;

Thank you to Lorraine Conti Lubicich, with whom I feel speaks eloquently for the majority of our Rockaway residents in expressing her disappointment towards Mr. Weiser's insensitive comments. (Let me reiterate, in regard to the plane crash memorial, "It has been rammed down our throats.") My family and I pass that crash site everyday and it has pressed heavily on my mind at how negative and well, downright nasty that comment really was.

I am quite sure that the mourners take greater issue in having their loved one's final resting place be in anyone's yard let alone someone who feels the way he does. It is what it is sir....It's hallowed ground. I cannot imagine being resentful of something like this. I feel very sorry for this person and it isn't only because his mother lost her home.

RACHEL EDWARDS
