Community heroes

Your series on "Commitment to Community," June 8, 9, 11, and 12, is inspiring. The series points out that we can supplement the everyday headlines without dodging reality. It is a tribute to the thousands of men and women who are everyday heroes.

These stories assure all of our citizens that they can make a positive difference without relying on government to "fix" their neighborhoods. Andrew M. Mecca, Sacramento, Calif. Dept. of Alcohol and Drug Programs, State of California
