Letter: Help for children from Shriners never far away

Tragedy can strike any one of us, in less time than it takes to read this sentence.

Every year, but especially during the winter, we watch TV newscasts or we read an article in the local newspaper about a tragic home fire in which one or more children has died or has been horribly burned, or perhaps a story about a child being scalded in hot water (accidental or otherwise).

We feel sorry for the victims — especially since they are children, and for the family and sometimes, for one another, if we happen to know the people involved.
