Will we show charity?
Re: “Concerns about the caravan,” by Annette Curtis, Oct. 29 Letters.
Curtis expresses concerns about where the caravan of migrants headed toward the U.S. is getting food, water and gas. She asks, “Who is paying for and supplying all this?” The Washington Post supplied the answers two days ago: “The responsibility of feeding, clothing and sheltering several thousand migrants has been embraced by the small Mexican towns along the route, with residents jumping into charity mode as if they were responding to a natural disaster. ‘We’re supporting them 100 percent,’ Rafael Trinidad, a municipal employee, said as he passed out sandwiches to migrants arriving along the main road. ‘At least here, they can feel good.’”
I wonder if, when the caravan finally reaches the Rio Grande, American citizens will treat these desperate men, women and their children with the same kindness, understanding and generosity as the poor people of Mexico are doing. Holmes Brannon, Plano
