Thank you Judge Leshen and Dr. Copeland (Daily Journal, July 11) for making time to write such beautiful and well reasoned words. The Daily Journal is also to be commended for seeing their importance during these unprecedented times.

Just as no family is truly healthy without acknowledging its shortcomings, and working to improve them, our American family will continue to be divided until we truly study history as it was, not as we wish it had been. Judge Leshen and Dr. Copeland have expressed themselves calmly, with clarity and conviction. In a nation that is suffering from an inability to engage in civil discourse with an eye toward true understanding, Saturday’s commentary was a beacon of hope.

Sincerely,

Stephen and Joan Hermes
