A Letter to King Denethor from Mrs. Willow


Dear King Denethor,

I regret to inform you that your son Boromir has been suspended for two
days for being involved in an incident in the playground. Boromir has strong
leadership qualities; unfortunately, he uses inappropriate techniques
of persuasion if others do not wish to follow him. In this particular
incident, one of the smaller boys had an article of jewellery that the boys were
pretending had magical powers. Boromir isolated the small boy and
attempted to take the item by force because, in his words, ''I want to be king;
it should be mine.'' His subsequent remorse and attempts to apologize to
the frightened boy in no way ameliorate the situation. Boromir may return
to school next week.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Willow
