Horrifying costume has no place at school or in Advocate

Upon receiving the Nov. 1 Advocate and turning to the C section, I was truly horrified and disgusted to see the picture of the St. Patrick School student in her Halloween makeup.

Thankfully the principal did not allow this in school.

Would that the Advocate had similar discretion in printing such horror in the paper.

It shows a very sad state of mind when mutilation of living human beings has become something to imitate and celebrate.

Do our young people and parents realize that people in countries in the Middle East and Africa are actually suffering the horrible mutilations, torture, and death that are party material here? They suffer, simply for being Christians, or a minority ethnic group.

Instead of so much focus on death, how much better to celebrate with thankfulness that we live in a country that God has blessed above all others and (as yet) no war.

This (God’s blessing) will not continue if we even can celebrate evil.
