[Editor's Note: I started to receive an occasional letter in the mail about 4 years ago with an envelope that was addressed to Educate-Yourself, but the contents of the letter always began with "Dear Oprah". I asked myself : "Why are they sending me a letter intended for Oprah?" Now and then I would continue to get these letters addressed to Oprah, and lately, I've been getting e-mail too, also addressed "Dear Oprah".
One of these letter writers mentioned that my web site and my name was listed as a contact on Oprah's web page, apparently for people who want to relay a sad story. I don't know Oprah and I have no idea why her staff put my name on her web page, but there you are. The little vignettes in these letters are always very poignant. I thought you might like to read some of them and perhaps offer encouragement and hope to people who feel forlorn and without a friend. It's obvious that Oprah's web person wanted to push these people off on somebody else, so I guess I got elected.
Of course, I realize that Oprah Winfrey, with a personal fortune of several billion dollars and a show/staff that must run into the millions, doesn't have time to attend to letters like this. So perhaps we can help her out, the poor dear, and send these writers a little encouragement. I have more of these to post. . ..Ken Adachi]

Thankyou for giving me this opportunity to write this to you.
I am a 56 year old women who lost my sight to RP. I have a great survival drive
inside of me. I am overwelmed by the outcome of what this blindness has given me.
I have a sharp, intelligent mind, good social skills, I am well groomed and don't
look blind which puts me in a empty space. I have a very respectable background and
find myself shut out by society, the work force and even volenteer positions in such
places as UCLA and numurous more.
As I continue this message, please don't shut me down as I am not asking for
anything from you.
I have been thrown into a povery level, live in a one room apartment in the
Wilshire/Fairfax district of Los Angeles.
I have only a hotplate in which to cood, very timy piece of counter space and my
rent is about $150 below my income.
I have become burnt and injured on many, many occasions. I have franticly been
trying not to let this happen for the past four years as I could see this coming. I
don't belong in this situation and am not heard by anyone. I have become isolated,
desperate and now live in panic and fear. I am overwhelmed and desperate.
I too, am now orphaned, with my mother, father and sister and best friend Bernie, my
dog of 14 years who all pasted away.
I have no body to turn to. Please do not suggest contacting my local office as I
have tryed that only to stand out like a neon sign, then once again, not being taken
There seems to be no place for me in this world and Oprha, I never thought that
there was such severe punishment for being blind.
Are there skilled, professional people that could help me, not just to talk about it
as I am so beyond that point with nothing left to say.
Someone to help with real results and help.
I desperatly need someone, I really can't do this anymore.
I really do have alot of worth to give.
Thank;you for anything you can do.
Subject: you robbed my life

To: Ken Adachi
I have written to you three times now begging you to please remove the Glinda
K on your site and Google.
You have destroyed my life. You have made me lose people in my life. You made a fool
of me and my life
You have put my life in danger and at risk, forcing me to move and yet, you continue.
You are with no doubt an evil and cruel man.
You killed me.
I have no recollection of reading 3 e-mails from you along these lines. I guess you assume that I read every mail sent and that I receive every mail sent to me. You would be wrong on both counts. Concerning your preposterous statement that I "killed" you or caused you to "lose "people in your life, and similar exaggerations, I can only say you are an absurd individual who must routinely employ melodramatic overstatements with everyone you meet. "Forcing" you to move and "made a fool of you". Holy Cow! You belong on a psychiatrist's couch.
I reproduced your letter with your e-mail address in an attempt to HELP YOU attract someone who might assist you in some way! Why else were you writing to Oprah? Weren't you LOOKING for help? How could people contact you without an e-mail address?
For this, you condemn me as "cruel and evil"?
YOU make your reality Glinda. YOU shape the course of your life and YOU draw to you the energy that YOU PUT OUT.
You are the ultimate in FSFM, Feel-Sorry-for-Myself Syndrome. You understand NOTHING. Everyone but YOU is responsible for your misery and woe. Grow up.
Sayonara, Ken Adachi
PS: I have no control over Google, in case that's news to you.
PPS. For a person who is "blind", impoverished, alone, and without assistance of any type, you read and type remarkably well.
PPPS. Retinal pigmentosis is EASILY resolved with colloidal silver, found in any health food store.
