Compassionate Brattleboro heals heartbreaking divisiveness

RE: “Unsung Heroes honored” [Town and Village, Oct. 28]:

I was so proud of my town when I read about its recognition of COVID-19-period unsung heroes.

This expression of compassion, this unwillingness to allow such efforts to be taken for granted, is exactly the reason I moved to this town.

Bravo, Brattleboro, and special thanks to Compassionate Brattleboro for this, for our monthly compassion stories, and for your efforts to help reduce the heartbreaking divisiveness in our country.
