LEADERS IN MAKING
RE: “Sally pulls back from the brink” on the front page and Vivienne Steur “Suffering must stop” on page 18 of the May 22 edition; what amazing women these are, Sally for 'fighting her demons' and wanting to reach out and help others by becoming qualified in psychology, Vivienne for responding to people in poverty who are hungry.
These women are leaders. It is a sad reflection on our government that it is not leading in providing adequate social support services for people, leaving charity groups or individuals to do the work. Drug addiction and poverty can happen to anyone, to people like you and I. Sally and Vivienne, you are community leaders in the making.
