Editor: As a former resident of Ashburn Village for nearly 12 years, I still have much pride for the area. Despite currently residing in Leesburg, I still attend many of the events and festivals in the Ashburn area including the Ashburn Village 4th of July fireworks—they are definitely the best in the county.
As I was waiting for the fireworks to commence, I noticed a slight error in a street sign. There is no such thing as “Ashburn Village Road.”
This is not the first time that signs have been messed up in the county; however, I feel as though it is becoming more of a commonplace as there is a lack of attention to detail. I remember reading a few months back in the opinion section the misspelling of “Cotton Commons” at the new traffic light in Lansdowne where it should be “Coton Commons.”
I feel as though technology is consuming more and more of people’s daily lives and attention to detail is something that is lacking in everyday society. It is a skill that is no longer commonplace like it once was. I just hope that future generations learn when to take a break from the consistent utilization of technology in order to focus on little details.
