An Editorial by Robert Benson, my first cousin

Sad witness

To the editor:

Recently at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Library in Geneva, NY while
taking the elevator, I glimpsed from the door a mother and child,
a girl about six years old at a bright learning screen. I could not help
hearing the child, who was having difficulty seeing the screen, say,
"Mommy, I want to see!"

Just before the elevator door closed I saw, unforgettably, the mother strike
the child in the face. In the darkness of the elevator, I wept profusely.

Childless 56 years because of retardation, I ask mothers not to keep
their children in darkness.

The day of the incident was National Prayer Day. I ask you to pray for
knowledge and wisdom.




Roy G. (Bunny) Benson
