To the editor:

I was so disappointed in hearing about the protests, rioters and the tearing down of the statue of Christopher Columbus. It's been up at the Capitol grounds since 1934 I understand.

I have seen the worst of America in the last two and a half weeks by the tragic death of George Floyd. No governor or president has all the answers. I pray for renewal for America, "one nation under God with liberty and justice for all." Keep the flag of freedom waving.
