Thank you for the ever-so-informative article on the trials and tribulations of first-year college students returning home for the summer ("After a Year at College, the Shock of Homecoming" by Michelle M. Miller, June 14).
The difficulties in adjusting to home life after being on their own must be traumatic. I can appreciate the tediousness of being told to pick up one's clothes.
I do admit that I was not able to finish the article as my sympathies kept returning to a family's loss of its daughter in the day-care fire and the tragedy of the Chinese people. I'm sure that if the Chinese students were able to get a copy of that article, their hearts would feel as mine does.
