I have been taking my mother down to the Saint John’s Episcopal Hospital clinic for wound care treatment weekly. The trip is a nightmare, literally. Between the way too many lights, DOT choking everything to single lanes, God awful road conditions and a feeble attempt to repair it, it takes me half an hour to schlepp a mere six miles. That's 12 MPH for all you math wizzes. Seriously, is there anybody out there who does not find this UNACCEPTABLE? Something needs to be done.
I wrote an article for the Rockaway Waterfront Alliance in last week's issue about Living Classroom and its focus on horseshoe crabs.
I'm writing to let you know that I gave the wrong person credit for the quote at the end of the article. It was not Jacques Cousteau who said, "In the end, we will conserve only what we love. We will only love what we understand. We will understand what we are taught," but rather Baba Dioum, a Senegalese poet.
I would like to give credit where credit is due. Apologies. Keep up the amazing work!
I believe the class ring found by Ms. Deligiannis belonged to my mother, Jeanne Keely Sautner. She graduated from Marymount College in 1962, and did, in fact, lose her class ring. She passed away four years ago on May 18. I would like to possibly retrieve this ring for my father. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
(Editor’s Note: There was a happy ending. The ring and the Sautner family have been reunited.)BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
