It was great reading that there are young people playing chess (TCH, April 16).
Chess was a game that was played a lot in my family. For at least three generations. I always felt that playing chess helped to develop some of the traits the men in my family had as adults. Patience, as well as the willingness to think out and solve problems in their personal lives as well as in jobs. Everything from making parts they can’t find to repair something to coming up with computer programs.
I hope these young people will make chess a part of their lives and that it will help them develop good traits.
