After watching Valerie Harper being interviewed on TV, I feel she is deserving of the most prestigious, civilian medal that our country has because of her sincere, controlled courage in revealing her innermost feelings. For example, she indicated her desire to be of service to mankind for all time.

She thereby set an example of courage in the face of an immediate, personal and tragic situation. She made a most courageous effort, and I believe that she accomplished her aim of helping anyone who can use such encouragement.

Hopefully, that’s enough to survive, remain optimistic and maintain a sense of humor despite all odds, as long as life will permit.
