LETTER: 'America is you and me'

To the Editor:

Congratulations to Pastor Joel Murr and the church family at Grace Chapel! I have seen church musicals and cantatas for over 50 years, but Sunday, the June 8, was one great, magnificent, tremendous patriotic celebration. It seemed there were hundreds involved and thousands of flags, as well as uniformed celebrants from all five branches of our military. Never have I heard such a rousing, heart-warming presentation of patriotism, reaching to every fiber of my pride in country and community. It really had a clear message, as spoken by the children: “America is you and me.”

When it was finishing, we all wanted to wave our flag and shout “Thank God for America!”

For one brief, shining hour, we heard what is good in America. We are all too aware that much more needs to be done. Who will do it? The kids were right: “America IS you and me!”

Thank you, Grace! Thanks, Donald, for that super finale!
