I would like to respond to the letter by Bertha Pruden in the Sept. 30 Penticton Western News regarding Dave Bobbitt.
Here is my thought: A person can spend a lifetime earning trust, respect and love — but in one reckless moment can destroy it all, never to be forgiven and perhaps banished from civilized society. Think about it. Why go there? Why? Be a good person. Be nice. Be a friend. There is no excuse to be bad and hurt someone.
