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 â€œfun family eventâ€ as dressing up like the so-called â€œundead,â€ staggering around Fort Langley, dripping fake blood? [â€˜Soulless corpsesâ€™ 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! Letâ€™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 Binnâ€™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.
