Reader Feedback: God bless, Reverend

Re: "Reader Feedback: Thanks to kind-hearted Slovaks," By Reverend Samuel Lo, Vol. 8 No. 27, July 15 - 21

Very touching, Reverend. I'm glad it happened to you. That's the way we were even during communism. Parents requested it from their children. Slovaks are a very polite and hospitable nation, and I am very glad for your very positive reaction to your experience there. I haven't lived there now for 34 years, but it's still nice to see or hear about people enjoying Slovakia. What you experienced there is in the mentality of the majority of Slovaks. I will cherish your article. God bless you.
