Letter: Black Balloon Day

Donna Rieder writes:
I can understand the need to express and hold dear the memories of lost precious family members, but the article was very concerning to me. In light of all the plastic pollution that ends up in the ocean, and often in the bellies of marine animals, I sincerely hope that all those balloons won't be released into the sky. Aside from the negative effects from pollution, I feel like that would be a slap in the face for those of us who truly care about our wonderful and amazing planet.
