Re: “Accident: What is wrong with humanity?” (TNT, 5-3).

After reading this letter, we felt compelled to reply and let the writer know the man she and her husband helped was worth the abuse they experienced.

Bryan Beale was part of what is right with humanity. He taught kids to accept responsibility for their actions and to better themselves as individuals so they can positively contribute to society.

He was considerate, kind, patient and caring to our son and many others, and we are so very thankful someone like this couple could be with him in his time of need. We know Bryan was worthy of their efforts and kindness but would ask those who passed by so callously if they feel they are, and would hope that reflection would lead them to change.
