Letter: Philosophizing from Vermont

Editor:

Regarding Steve Coons’ comments about Vermont (“There’s some trouble brewing in Vermont,” Sept. 12), while reading them, all I could think of was something I learned studying the youth empowerment model of the Native Americans called “The Circle of Courage.” When their children misbehaved, they would not scold them. They would respectfully say, as I do to you now, “Someday, when you are older, you will understand.”
