Joy is in the giving
It's said "the essence of generosity is self-sacrifice". Your picture showing over 2,000 people in a queue for a hot meal or food parcel outside the Capuchin Day Centre in Dublin's Bow Street (Irish Independent, December 13) on a bitterly cold day speaks for itself.
It depicts the true face of Ireland as it shivers in the shadow of the most stringent Budget in memory. It took those benefactors at the Capuchin Centre to realise kindness is the oil that takes the friction out of life.
This photograph should be enlarged and displayed all over Leinster House.
