Three minivans and a pickup truck pull up in front of a house on Pleasant Street in East Los Angeles, and nine volunteers climb out to pack the vehicles with 100 or so gallon jugs of water stored in the carport. As they finish, Father Richard Estrada, a tall man in jeans and a white shirt, calls everyone together. They join hands as he prays, "Heavenly Father, help us save lives." It sounds melodramatic in the morning light, but by the end of the day, the words seem prophetic.

Re "Sticks and Stones and Sports Team Names," Commentary, Oct. 29: I don't mean to be politically incorrect, but where was Richard Estrada when so many of us were insulted watching the Yankees, Patriots and Cowboys play? Come to think of it, I didn't hear any of those pioneers complain. Oops, I guess I should complain about the Simi Valley High School Pioneers. Too confusing for me. Let's hope the animal activists don't read this. What of endangered species like the timber wolf?

As she sat primly under a portrait of the Virgin Mary, 15-year-old Angelica Arroyo's silver tiara glistened against the gold-plated altar of La Placita Church on historic Olvera Street. When Father Richard Estrada handed her a calligraphy-adorned certificate, the church erupted in applause: Angelica had completed her quinceanera. "To me it's a very special moment because she's my only daughter," said Arroyo's mother, Maria Soto, outside the church.

Re "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People," Opinion, March 9: M. Delal Baer's thoughtful column on U.S.-Mexico relations certainly illustrates that certification or decertification of Mexico is not the problem. The real problem is that we devised and instituted the certification process at all. Our diplomats in the State Department and their legions overseas should be in charge of how we deal with each foreign country under broad policy directions, rather than be confined by a process such as certification, which at best is confusing and at worst offers a platform where politicians can sharp shoot for their own interests.

As a person who has been involved in working with homeless youth and families for over 12 years, I want to respond to "Recovery Does Little to Help L.A. Homeless" (May 19). Homelessness does not just rest in the hands of Mayor Richard Riordan. We all have to take responsibility. Only when former homeless people, community-based organizations, homeless agencies and advocates, business leaders, public officials and residents invest in meaningful dialogue to end homelessness will there be change.
