It was heartbreaking to read about retired pediatrician Dr. John Kahler’s experiences volunteering in Greece for MedGlobal but also encouraging to know that doctors and medical personnel from the international relief organization are doing what they can to help people who are desperately in need of medical care. Although Kahler said there was no hope left in Moria, the large refugee camp on Lesbos, he and other volunteers are providing some hope to those who may not have otherwise received medical treatment if it wasn’t for people willing to risk their lives to help others affected by atrocities. It takes a special kind of person to do medical mission work. Thank you to those who have taken on that challenge.
I really enjoyed the marching band article in Sunday’s paper. We were band parents at Oak Lawn High School for years. It was a lot of work and time at the events. We loved every minute. Go Spartans. Hats off to all bands.

As a Cubs fan for almost 50 years, I would like to say this year’s team was disgraceful. Your so called superstars don’t come through. They need to make some changes. The Cubs are back to letting fans down.
I read the disappointing news about local women being victimized when their purses were stolen from their shopping carts. I have come to find a deterrent, which may not be foolproof, but may help. I have gotten into the habit of wrapping my purse handle around the child safety belt and locking it. Hopefully, this will be of help in the future.
