The good news was overshadowed by politicization.

Last week’s cruise was great for the community

Editor’s note: This letter is in response to the May 13 article, “Cruising through the ‘Claw: grassroots event saw the city come alive.”

I am saddened that the article in the Courier-Herald was focused on politics and less on the good that was done that evening. How well you practice social distancing is a personal decision, you will never control others actions! Just go to Walmart!

Dana Wilcox did a wonderful thing suggesting a cruise that raised food donations for the local food bank, she supported local businesses by asking that dinner take-out come from a local vendor, and she generally raised the morale of a small town by including all that were interested in participating in this event.

I feel inundated by negativity in the media surrounding the virus and this event helped us forget, just for an evening, just how narrow minded and selfish people can be. Everyone was smiling, happy, friendly, helpful and generally excited to be out. I was there, I felt the vibe and hope that feeling can be conveyed over the negative politics. This is just my opinion and I feel honored to be able to voice it.
