Letter: Some light in a dark world

To the Editor:

Growing up in the 1950s and 1960s never was there so much in the news regarding sexual harassment. Who is next on the list?

Some of the accused used to be on my favorite list for being a favorite actor. Also growing up, I can’t remember hearing about all the killings. Why are there so many assault weapons on the streets? Oh, that is right, just go online and order one, or go to a certain part of a city and purchase one. All the people who are being killed and what is really being done about it? With the right components, you can go to a local gun shop, buy a rifle and modify it to be an assault weapon. It’s getting to be a pretty dark, ugly world. 

Only a little light I could see was a young lady who helped me pay for my groceries when I ran a bit short at Meijer’s on Nov. 3. Thank you so much.
