LETTER: Need more love in the world

This is in response to 'School pulls charity participation over religious concerns'

This is in response  to “School pulls charity participation over religious concerns.”

Sometimes children say it in the simplest form and the utmost truth. Kudos to Noah Lochbaum for saying it as it is. It is a voice like yours that will bring change – real change – here in Canada and around the world.

I think children need to see people getting together, especially when those people are playing such a big role of educating children for life here and abroad. We don’t need to be religious to show a little kindness, but if religion is the path to show some love at Christmas to humanity, then shouldn’t that be OK?

I think we need more love in the world and those neat students at Dr. Thomas Swift deserve an opportunity to give if they so wish. Please don’t steal their Christmas joy; they deserve it.
