I read "Bullies murdering girl's memories" [Nov. 1 Letters, TIMES] feeling the same sentiments as the writer, all the way to the end, and then couldn't help myself as I let out a cry of incredulous surprise to see who wrote these all-too-true sentiments.
I guess that's really why bullying will never end, because bullies don't see themselves as such. Imagine the lack of awareness of letter-writer Linda Meyer to have experienced years of reading letters from the citizens of Maple Ridge, expressing their dismay that she has asserted her will over that of the local population and taken away the rights of the multitude to experience the local leisure centre in a way that the majority would wish. She probably feels like a victim herself, but has forced herself and her "wants" on everyone else, and we can all just suck it up.
If she really wants to make a statement against bullying, she might like to write a letter of apology to Maple Ridge residents, promise to change, and then follow through by keeping her nudity to a more private venue.
