Reader responds to hate crime


To the editor:

Thank you for a well-written article on the recent hate crime in Meigs County. As a resident of East Tennessee it so saddens me to see atrocities of this nature taking place.  I do hope that the arsonist is found and punished.

Having a gay son, I can only imagine the fear that our gay and lesbian children have to endure.

My heart goes out to Mr. Waters, and I wish him all good things for the future.
