Advocate columnist Salomons inspiring

There are good reasons to read the Red Deer Advocate and one of them is to read the weekly column by Chris Salomons. I know I echo the sentiments of many people when I say each week this very decent caring human being inspires us with his wisdom, words and genuine feeling of concern for others.

He has that rare gift and shares it with so many he comes in contact with in this wonderful example he offers. The effort he puts forth for those homeless,

neglected, addicted and shunned sets a great example that hopefully all of us will take note of and improve where we can to do our little bit with more

concern and help even though it may be just a smile or a shoulder to lean on for just a few moments.

Thank you Chris and those volunteers that work with you for the work you do, so often with no recognition but always with inspiration for the many

that read your Saturday column. May you live to be 110 because even if that happens, your dedication to your work will be the same, helping others in need.
