Letter: At Merrimack Valley, tragedy might have been averted
Re “A fuller picture of me, MV” (Monitor letter, March 26):
Emma Hamilton criticizes the Monitor for, as she writes, reporting for “the enjoyment of others’ misery.”
She dislikes having her “wrong choice” publicized.
Instead of complaining, she should be sending a letter thanking all who prevented her wrong choice from possibly becoming a real tragedy, one that put her name in the obituaries.
I’d like to tell Hamilton about two sisters, cousins of three of my grandchildren, whose wrong choice concerning a bottle of vodka one October night several years go forever changed not their reputations but the lives of all who knew and loved them.
