We need more stories like the one Lisa Bryan wrote about Larry the young duckling in the August edition ("Picking Up and Letting Go," Aug. 2023) I personally feel like most news reported these days is negative and makes my heart feel troubled. I do believe “we” as a society have lost respect or kinship toward each other, which is exactly why I enjoyed the article about Larry. The type of tolerance and compassion exhibited is something, as she said, that should be extended to all living things. Maybe stories like these could be the start to such a revolution!
