Dialogue with the world

The recent remarks of a Sentinel reader reaffirmed how this magazine relates to the world in which we live. It's a world in which events can get pretty tough to cope with, not to mention our own private struggles.

So, if you're like me, when the Sentinel arrives in the mail, you pick it up in order to see first if there's something in particular that relates directly to your own—how shall we describe it?—personal life and concerns. That's a natural response and one that we'll all keep making. But this reader, who had given me a call, told me that the Sentinel was helping her come back into the world. She'd long been battling with what she saw as the world's harshness and cruelty. As a result, she said, she knew she'd been withdrawing from contact with people.
