The author of “Two Truths and a Lie” missed the point. In Pendleton and Hermiston we have folks who need the refuge of the warming station on a cold night. There are also families who can’t afford the daily meals.

Finally, there are veterans who need assistance in one form or another. Until we can take care of our own, why would we go looking for others to help, wherever they are from? It is wrong to ignore our own to help others.
