Editor,

Thank you Daily Journal for including youthful voices among our local columnists.

As an older resident, I welcome the diversity of viewpoints.

I especially appreciated Aragon High School senior Josette Thornhill’s “When COVID hits home” column Jan. 9-10, 2021.

Josette’s column could potentially be included in a time capsule for future generations to read, helping others learn and understand the difficult times that we all faced. Her personal reflections on living in a multi-generational household during the quarantines of 2020-2021 brought me much-needed belly laughs.

And to Josette: please consider including in your future being a professional writer and humorist.

The world needs your voice, Ms. Thornhill. Keep on going!
