Reader feedback: Good memories go far

Re: Slovak warmth in Siberia, By Kristína Havasová, March 3 - 10, Vol 9, No 8

[Monika Svrčková], your story has touched my heart. To bring even a little light to these children will give them hope that they will remember throughout their life. You have given them a good and happy memory to think back on, and I believe that anything that is truly good from the heart lives on. God bless the work you have done. If only the world had more people willing to devote just a little bit of their selves to help others, our world wouldn't be going through the problems we have today. You have done a good thing.
