Pancake breakfast was touching

Dear Editor:

The Basalt Lions Club and Basalt Regional Library free community pancake breakfast on Sunday was such a touching and thoughtful way to remember 9/11. The only person in our family who left unhappy was Elias (age 4). Cut off (by his parents) after four sausages, he asked, nonetheless: “How do they cook such good pancakes?”

The event made us pause not just to remember 9/11, but to think about the kinds of people who make up the Lions, who care so much that they didn’t just host a free breakfast on a Sunday, but worried, as we left, if we’d got plenty.

Auden, Ellen, Willa and Elias Schendler
