Carla Green
On Water (March 2019)

Dear Editor: I am saddened by your increasing use of web sites for you publication. Like nearly half of Americans, I cannot afford a computer system and, as we age out, that number will increase. This is a new form of classism and exclusion. My understanding of Quakerism is to be in the world but not of it – and to strive for simplicity.

Also, I am appalled that you included the poem “Ten Days” in the Jan/Feb 2019 issue of Western Friend, which is a publication for peace-loving people. We don’t need to be exposed to graphic descriptions of horror to be aware of its presence! And what about the kids reading that! I really don’t think you know what’s appropriate content for this publication any more.

– Carla Green, Eugene Meeting (NPYM)
