City servants don't deserve ire

To the editor,

Durango’s city leaders/servants get a lot of anger thrown their way every day, publicly and personally. Especially during voting seasons. Yet? By feeble ilg’s direct experience through my city employee yoga classes, my native h(om)etown leaders/servants (who choose to take my yoga class on their lunch hour!) are supremely focused, polite, obedient, humble, humorous, super aware, highly disciplined, intelligent, compassionate and gregarious.

And? They could probably kick your you-know-what, because ilg knows how strong, supple and focused they continue to bec(om)e. Fact is, our noble city leaders/servants (yup, ilg is training a few of our police in this precious class) are among the most valorous students ilg has had the privilege of serving over 35+ years of teaching.

So, if you are gonna hammer my city leaders/servants by an easily quilled “Letter to the Editor” to pass integrity judgment on them: 1) Know that it has been and remains a genuine highlight and deep honor of mine to give back to my c(om)munity by helping the health and well-beingness of our precious city servants; and 2) before you so easily tap out that letter of lambast, best ask yourself first, “What is it that I do each day (or week, or month, or ?) to help my c(om)munity?!

That is all. Head bowed, Spirit vowed ... Namah!
