A letter to the editor from Dianne sharing her experience with those less fortunate.

I had cause to visit a shelter for the homeless recently and I felt encouraged largely by the kinds of people I found there. Most of these people, both men and women, possessed a sincerity in purpose, a sensitivity in being as well as a depth of feeling and understanding of each other as it would be for most human beings.
