HOPING this finds you well and that you are as enthusiastic as ever in the ongoing struggle to help our young people to cope with life today. (Yes, as usual, I have a favour to ask.)
Young people are like stars in the firmament, so numerous, so anxious to take the right road, so longing to communicate.
I ask you to open up a tiny door which might help someone to meet their problems in a quiet and confidential way. My proposal is that you inaugurate a Family Letter Writing Day. For example, dad writes to son, mom to daughter, even granddad, uncles, baby to dolly, etc. How about December 1? Remember, many a tragedy can be avoided if there is a little prior knowledge. And a Family Letter Writing Day might be a help. Thanks and best wishes. Ben Ryan Duleek, Co Meath
