A relative was going through some old family files today, and found a clipping of a letter to the editor in the local newspaper that appeared on December 12, 1974. He texted me a photo of it.

The title was “Irony at UN?”

It was written by me. I was 15 at the time.

The letter probably is the first piece I ever published.

But I don’t remember it.

It’s kind of spooky for me to read it. It could have been written yesterday.
