The real American spirit

Letter to the Editor | Monday, November 10, 2008

After living through an exhausting presidential campaign and all the good and the ugly connected with it, I just wanted to comment on a bright spot. As an “old grad” who loves Notre Dame and is interested in the current state of the union and opinions on campus, I must say that Nicole Burson’s letter on “America the Beautiful” in the November 10 “The Observer Email Edition” re-affirms my hope and shows the real spirit of America shining through. This country was founded upon a deep faith in God and trust in His guidance and blessings. Congratulation, Nicole, as you have beautifully expressed the greatness of our democracy and the responsibility of all Americans to continue in a positive way to support our country, affirm the sacredness of human life, and pray for the well-being of this great nation.
