He'll never waiver

Re: Jan Nistor's letter, Keyboard warrior rant, June 3

A keyboard warrior is someone who hides behind the computer and posts their personal beliefs and ideals on public forums, but when confronted in person would never hold that same point of view when face to face.

I am not a keyboard warrior. I will stand firm to that point of view in person and stick up for what I believe in no matter what the situation is.

I am not naive to the fact that we all have our own point of views and the right to say what we want. I do not believe most people my age don’t want the death penalty.

When the folks who wanted to chop off people's arms for stealing or publicly humiliate them for minor crimes  started to write in to Castanet, I felt the need to share my point of view on why I felt that is archaic and barbaric.

The fact that you took time out of your day to reply makes me elated as this sparked something in you and got you to chip in. So, for that, I am happy. I hope this gets a debate going and makes people realize taking a human life is not right, no matter what the situation is.

I'd be glad to have this conversation over coffee and show that not only am I not a keyboard warrior, but I have pretty open views on a lot of subjects. But being wrong for taking a human life is one I will never waiver from.
