Faith restored in today’s youth | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

I would like to express my gratitude to some of the young men of our town who were very helpful in our time of need.

My husband and I were taking a walk in our neighborhood when he developed a medical issue. The drivers of two passing vehicles observed this and stopped to assist. One was driven by an off-duty EMT, the other by two young men. They all helped us in getting safely home, where first responders were called; they are a blessing to the island.

This attitude of caring and getting involved is refreshing in contrast to the negative press one sees in the media today. Many thanks again and for restoring our faith in today’s youngsters.
