Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

The outline of a “body” on the floor in a now-occupied dorm room was in very bad taste, and I personally find it disgusting and an abomination to the memory of anyone who died at Kent State.

They were not a hollow outline, but they were flesh and blood with emotions and deep feelings. 

To the Students: Please, if you or anyone that you know are feeling depressed or alone, call someone. Call your parents! Call anyone! Cry out for help – someone will hear you! There is help for you on campus. Seek it out. Suicide is not the answer to the release of your pain.

Mark Peteritis


Editor’s note: The above letter was written in response to the article “Tragedy strikes” and was written by the father of Brian Peteritis, a student who passed away in Centennial Court C in October.
