The kindness of strangers


    Being a resident for 23 years, I have again learned of the kindness and helpfulness of my Malibu neighbors.

    1999 has been a wonderful year! Not because of losing most of my eyesight, but because of the friendship extended to me by everyone. You see, I am now dependent upon public transportation, buses, hitchhiking, Dial-a-Ride and walking.

    While waiting or walking, many of you have stopped and offered me rides to where I need to go. From strangers, we have become good friends. Your fellowship again proves that Malibu is a great place.

    To all of you, and especially to my private “taxi” service friends, I thank you and wish you a prosperous Year 2000.
