Letters to the Editor - Letter of apology

Dear Editor:I just wanted to write to let you know that I am saddened that nobody wrote a letter pertaining to the passing of John Quincy Adams. If you print my letter please print it in its entirety. I want all to know of my wrongdoings. As you know, I had written the Patriot three times and got my letters printed, once in the Eagle. Then for some unforeseen reason you would not print any more of my letters. I then wrote mean letters calling Mr. Adams cruel names, that he must have Alzheimer's when he would not print any of my later letters. I went as far as to write that he should be replaced with a fresh new editor. Then I repented. I wrote many apology letters, all with a heavy heart, as to this one I write now. I was in near tears when I read of Mr. Adam's passing. "Did he ever read the letters of my cruelty? Did he ever read my letters of apology? I don't know? I may never know." I just pray and hope he read my apology letters and accepted them. Because it hurts knowing I've done wrong and tried to apologize for my wrongdoings. We should not go to our deaths without forgiving those who wronged us, even if the wrongdoer such as I was trying to apologize. I hurt so much in my heart. Again, I apologize to all of the Patriot staff as well as to all of you who read my letter. We all know where Mr. Adams is, and he has no pain, he is in a new body, having the time of his life with our Creator and His Son, and all the saints that went before us all. I'll leave with this: I bet President John Quincy Adams is up there having the time of his life with our friend, John Quincy Adams. Yes siree! I love all of you at the Patriot and all of you of our town of Downey. - Paul H. Duran, Downey ********** Published: February 6, 2009 - Volume 7 - Issue 42
