Re: Photographer aims for emotion in essay, Oct. 6.
Braden Paul accomplished what he set out to do.
The photo essay he created is a touching tribute to those with Alzheimer’s and others who are no longer able to look after themselves.
My father is a resident of Peace Portal Lodge and is quoted in the essay.
That one poignant statement embodies Dad’s struggle. The patients of care homes are people. They have led interesting lives, have experienced great loves and achieved much. Many served in the Second World War and their stories are the stuff that movies are made of.
Try to remember that the next time you see someone who is elderly and struggling with their current reality. They are people and they deserve a respectful place in our society.

That was very moving.
Good for you, Braden for taking the time to do that.
It actually brought a tear to my eye.
You should be proud of yourself.
