Last week, publisher Don Smith wrote some words about my mother that were untrue. He wrote that Frankie Pillifant was unable to compromise. Well, that's a lie if I ever saw one! One should not think that way about someone, put it in writing, and enclose it in a box and make thousands of copies and send them out to the citizens of Juneau. Especially if they are downright lies. In the 11 years I have lived, I find that my mom is able to compromise, and those words grow untrue every second.
For example: I want to go to bed a 10 p.m., she wants me to go to bed at 9 p.m. She compromises. Now, I go to bed at 9:30 p.m.!
I think that Don should respect my mom and other people, because everyone is a human being and deserves to be treated with respect.
Now, I hope that some people, including Don, should think differently about my mom and know that she is the most kind, loving person on earth.
