Dear Editor:

I have read many opinions on who was to blame for the death of Jdimytai Damour, the Walmart employee who was trampled to death. Some blame the store while others say it is the people who acted in an appalling matter and with total disregard for human life.

I feel a life was taken for the sake of commercialism. I also think there is enough blame to go around for the store and the people. What most people have forgotten it seems is that one of the important holidays this season is Christmas, the day Jesus was born.

Did not the Angels sing,” Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace and good will toward men.” The message unfortunately has been lost. Now the reason for the season is to get that gift and make that buck. What a shame and it is so sad that this mentality has now cost a person his life.
