Working for the common good
Re: July 4 article “Lending a helping hand.”
I want to thank Andrea Ball and the American-Statesman staff for running the article.
I was brought to tears today when reading about the work that the ACCESS team is doing with homeless people in our community. I can think of no better way to celebrate our country than to highlight the work of a group of people that has dedicated itself to helping the most vulnerable of our fellow citizens.
It reminds me that there really are legions of people working for the common good — that beyond our disagreements, real and imagined, we are bound by our shared humanity. Genevieve van Cleve firstname.lastname@example.org
