RIPR – During our lifetimes, many of us have known true horror, whether the result of personal tragedy, such as the untimely death of a loved one, or worldwide disaster, such as a world war or the attack of 9-11. Betty Adler had her own brush with calamity, and during her 86 years has learned to still believe in the possibilities of hope and redemption, as we hear in this encore essay.
Betty Adler has lived in Rhode Island since 1940. She and her family own Adler's Design Center and Hardware in Providence.
