My father volunteers at the local hospital. He was there today and was talking to the Catholic chaplain. They’d never spoken before. Dad told him about me and the chaplain recognized my name as the author of a certain letter to the editor about mental illness and gun control. It was published over a year ago and still he remembered it. The chaplain told my father it was one of the best letters to the editor he’d ever read, and that I had an excellent point, and that he thought I had a very good heart and was very brave to share my story in a public forum.
Dad of course is delighted. I am very touched.
