Better use of time


To the Editor:
I was appalled that students in our city high schools are even involved in this “squirt gun” activity. To use it to pick on and abuse other students seems cruel, to say the least. Isn’t it enough that we read in the papers every day of violence around the world and in our own country, without mimicking that with this ridiculous “game?”
By the time a student is a senior it is hoped that they are turning to more positive activities and giving back to the community rather than scaring other students in their school. All of us like and enjoy a good time. That game does not sound like something I would want my children involved in.
My sympathies go out to the young lady involved and her family for the torture they went through in this incident. Can we not do better than that with our time and energy?
