A Long Run in Brooklyn

Dear Editor: The story about Matt Long in The Tablet (Nov. 8) was truly inspiring! Who could forget the transit strike of December, 2005?

I remember hearing that Matt Long was injured, but I truly did not know the extent of his injuries until now.

His courage, his parents’ devotion and Father Jim Devlin’s help all worked to make the story of his recovery truly amazing.

I’m sure his book “The Long Run” will be a great help to all who are struggling with difficult situations and a reminder to everyone that God has a plan for us all.

I wish Matt Long Godspeed and all the best.
