Dear Editor:

I always read Kami’s articles. I have the most amazing little 6-year-old son who is also on the spectrum and she has enlightened me with her experiences and have made them so 100% relatable for me.

This week’s article hit close to home as she announced her 3 new year’s resolutions regarding her daughter’s autism. I decided a long time ago that in order to have people understand my SONshine and who he is I just have to educate them more on autism and how that makes him brilliantly unique in his own way. He has never been less than in his mommy and daddy’s eyes. He is that and so much more. Thank you, Kami!

The greatest compliment you can give me is the referral of your family and friends!

A Texas synagogue where Jewish worshippers were taken hostage was the latest incident of antisemitism in this country. The Asian American / Pacific Islander community has seen hate-motivated violence this weekend in Manhattan. Immigrants and people of color across our city face a lack of access to safe housing and working conditions, as seen in the deaths following Hurricane Ida, the recent Bronx fire, and the struggles of essential delivery and taxi workers who kept our city

Each year on Martin Luther King Day, I’m accustomed to seeing a collection of feel-good quotes on social media about the reverend’s dream of achieving racial unity, if we could all just work together. While those pleasant quotes from MLK hold their own space in history and on our timelines, what a heartening change of pace to spot the bolder, more radical words of Martin Luther King Jr. posted around Rockaway this weekend (words that did his memory justice). In a neighborhood

 

 Dear Editor:

I just had to contribute to your mail bag and say—even though you may have tested positive—you are still in command of the English language and your Boyleing Points are always so entertaining—and ring true in a POSITIVE way. It makes you appreciate the things you have—and we have you and we thank God. Being "isolated" is a trial in itself. It takes away your choices (that we took for granted). Such true words... Thanks for sharing! And wishing you well!

The fire that took place at Dayton is so unfortunate but luckily nobody was hurt, thanks in part to Mark Wade in apartment 9O, right above. He heroically alerted neighbors. His apartment is unlivable at this time due to no electricity, unsafe smoke residue and debris from broken windows and knocked out walls from firefighters (God bless them). I think Mark Wade needs a shout-out.

I read with great sorrow of the recent passing of Maxwell Mickey Cohen. Mr. Cohen was a notable member of the pantheon of great teachers we were blessed to have at the former Far Rockaway High School back in the ‘60s and ‘70s. His fantastic teaching style was instrumental in creating a true love of science through his biology teaching. He was responsible for many of his students taking advanced careers in science and medicine for which I am deeply indebted.

One of my 2022 wishes is for the "no U-turn" signs on Beach 116th Street and on Beach Channel Drive near the post office be removed. Motorists consistently disregard the regulation and police rarely enforce the law.
