Letter: Re: “​Students the real adults at anti-immigrant protest​”

I was relieved and impressed by your article, “​Students the real adults at anti-immigrant protest​” in Friday’s Red Deer Advocate. I found the article itself demonstrated responsible and professional journalism​ while decrying the insidious origin and impact of fake news. Furthermore, it portrayed accurately the young adults we get to work with each day here at Lindsay Thurber. I have the privilege of teaching Ursella Khan in my grade 12 English class. What you saw and heard from her is what she lives every day: compassion toward others.

Thank you for an article that presented a balanced view of a situation that was thrown out of balance by ignorance and fear.
