To the editor:
I am a mother who lost her job at Walmart after five years. I am on unemployment, working trying hard to make ends meet. I already told my children that Christmas would have to wait. My son, who is 10, teared up. He said, “Don’t worry, Mom. It’s not about the gifts.”
Later that day I rounded up change to buy diapers for my daughter and my grandson. My son went with me. I was short a dollar.
