|Sad but true. And these the lonely people seem to walk by and not even notice their existence. When you see this in someone, its amazing what just a little friendly conversation does for them. It does make a difference. I've seen it myself. People are just too afraid to reach out anymore. You still have to feel out the situation. I don't want to encourage someone to go talk to homicidal maniac.|

|In a world where more attention is given to possessions rather than persons, it is no wonder that human life holds so little value to so many. Still, it is amazing how one caring person like yourself can go so far toward making the world a better place. M.True|

|Yet we are overcrowded. The forced loneliness of our frenetic lifestyle, separated both by physical distance from our extended family and by the use of technology, is creating increasingly more loneliness. While great art and literature have come from the most lonely, it is a sad commentary when much of our population spends so much time and suffering over loneliness when it can easily be averted by the simple act of contacting the lonely and communicating with them.
With my visits and telephone calls, I hope that I have helped someone reach up from their loneliness. My mother, perhaps the greatest communicator our family has ever known, has become very lonely in her apartment because she has aphasia, making it difficult to communicate by email and she is near deaf, making it difficult to talk to anyone.
