Re: “Being Brent,” the Now, May 19.
Thank you, Beau Simpson, for a phenomenal article and column about Brent Burgher.
I live in his neighbourhood and often see him walking around. I wish I could do more for him than just a plain, ‘Hello, how are you?’
He is a wonderful person in our community and we should embrace him.
My son has autism and it, too, can definitely be cruel and isolating.
We must all learn to accept people like Brent.
Thank you again for writing about him. I hope many, many people read it and take it to heart.
