Dear Editor,

I am just a concerned citizen who would like to send a reminder for anyone who goes for walks.

Please carry with you picture identification, just in case something happens.

My husband and I went to the aid of a senior who had fallen on the sidewalk.

Not only was there a language issue, this person did not have any form of ID.

We did what we could and left them with the emergency crew that showed up.

A cellphone is not enough, proper ID should be carried with you.

Thank you.
