To the Editor,

Re: Animal activists must re-examine priorities, Letters, Aug. 20.

Ruth Bard and her church have helped me, a single mother on assistance, with grocery gift cards.

She came to my home, she offered encouragement and has a loving heart. She certainly is not wealthy, but is an example of helping the “least of these”.

My son is a celiac with other food allergies and I have cared for the elderly for 17 years only to be discarded in the rejected WCB pile.

Bard is the epitome of love and compassion. She is a doer.

All she was questioning was why the dolphins get more attention than the starving children in the Horn of Africa and in our own backyards.

I would think that our fellow humans should be of higher priority under God’s law than dolphins.

I don’t agree with the killing of those dolphins and I applaud the young activists, but please don’t attack such a kind woman with an activist lifestyle helping those in need.
