Letter: No need to sensationalize
I am writing in response to the article I just read in The Recorder about the woman surviving jumping off the French King Bridge. I don’t think it’s right to sensationalize a horrifying incident at attempted suicide. How do you think this woman felt when she heard that the story about her unfortunate and very embarrassing personal event was printed for prying eyes to see and judge? This is just causing unnecessary negativity and gossip. Writing about such things is not making the world a better place. It is normalizing a subject that should be treated with great caution. Please think about how the things you write affect people in our community.
