Letters: Fort Langley zombies not hilarious at all

Dear Editor,

The second annual Zombie Walk in Fort Langley was billed as a fun family event that celebrated the macabre.

What is wrong with this picture?

What is wrong with this culture that defines a “fun family event” as dressing up like the so-called “undead,” staggering around Fort Langley, dripping fake blood? [‘Soulless corpses’ take to streets of Fort Langley, Oct. 7, Langley Advance].

I wonder what people in Africa, where thousands are dying from the Ebola virus, or those in Iraq, watching ISIS mercilessly behead humans, think.

Dead people? So fun! So hilarious! Let’s take our kids to these events so that they, too, think death is fun and entertaining!

While I commend the Advance for not publishing gruesome photos of this event on the front page as you did last year, I must disagree with letter writer

Natalie Binn’s recent positive assessment of this Zombie Walk [Zombies give Fort exposure, Oct. 14 Letters, Advance]. This is not the type of event

Fort Langley, or any other location, needs. There is enough darkness and death in this world.

Jacoba Leyenhorst, Langley
