Cohen owes an apology

Dear Editor:After reading Jeremy Barbin’s response (Aspen Times, July 18) to Meredith Cohen’s column (July 16), I felt the need to state my feelings as well. I think Ms. Cohen insults us when she compares wearing the yellow wristband to following the fad of the Cabbage Patch Doll and Rubik’s Cube. Sure, there are those who wear the yellow band as this year’s fad, however for myself and others like me, I wear it as a constant reminder that I am a cancer survivor. It is a ray of sunshine reminding me to celebrate life.I think Ms. Cohen owes us all an apology. Karen F. BerkowitzAspen
