Attacks on Sanchez, Jackson malicious

In this era when we strive for universal education, critical thinking, and sophistication, have we lost the ability to offer constructive criticism?

I am aggrieved at the comments made about Felix Sanchez and Grace Jackson, not because I believe persons should be denied the opportunity to express their dissatisfaction about the performance of others, but because the nature of the comments seemed to have one motive and could only result in humiliating and totally demoralising the two Olympians.

Instead of ridicule and derision, it would have been kinder to offer advice on improvement.

I pray that the simple principle of speaking the truth in love is not beyond us.
