We all deserve love and respect

Letter to the Editor: At this special time of year I would like to salute one of the unsung heroes of our community.

At this special time of year I would like to salute one of the unsung heroes of our community.

He is my friend of 10 years, Bill, or as a lot of folks know him “Bottle Bill.”

He has overcome many obstacles in his life and is dedicated to not only caring for himself but helping out in the community by cleaning up other people’s discards to recycle and pick up bottles, which is a hard task at times.

He does all this with honesty and goodwill but is treated often times with disrespect.

Let us remember, especially at this time of year, that we are all God’s children and as such deserve love no matter who we are.

We can be inspired by my friend’s dedication throughout the new year. Merry Christmas.
