Protesters Should Be Ashamed

Editor:

First of all, I'd like to start off by saying thank you to the Payson Public Library and all the wonderful volunteers for hosting the "Harry Potter Kids Night Out." Thank you.

In the eight years that my family has lived in Payson, there has always been an issue of "nothing to do" for our children, and when something does come up for them do (like "Harry Potter Night Out"), a group of small-minded adults try to ruin it.

Harry Potter is a fictitious character that some children love to read about. And I, for one, think that those so-called "protesters" that shoved flyers into people's faces and into my child's hand, did more damage to my child than Harry Potter ever will. It angers me so terribly to hear my son tell me how he and his fellow "Potter" fans were taunted by these small-minded individuals, with nothing better to do that ruin a "Kids Night Out."

At least our children were not out running the streets and destroying public property, or doing drugs and drinking.

We all have our beliefs and that is fine, but you shouldn't push yours onto others unless wanted.

You all know who you are, and you should be ashamed of yourselves.

Thanks again to the Payson Public Library and volunteers, my child had a great time.

Michelle Daughenbaugh, Payson
