Reaction not the problem

This is in response to Brad Tomassucci’s letter (“Be wary of VA privatization,” July 19) concerning his cancelled appointment and how his father would have reacted. He makes an excellent point. He states his father would have raised some hell over the issue, and as far as I am concerned, it would have been very justifiable.

In this day and age, if you get visibly upset and angry over something of that nature that occurs, you are considered in the wrong and become the focus of the problem. The reaction is more the issue than what caused the reaction.

The reaction being the focus instead of the cause is a good part of the whole problem of why this country has declined. Without the cause being the issue, nothing gets rectified.
