My granddaughter Cora’s parents took her to San Francisco this weekend where she sat in front of Grace Cathedral with a smile and a critical message on her shirt: “I love who you are.”
I came here often in 1971 and 1972 after I was honorably discharged from the Army. Back then it was a time of healing over a country torn apart by its involvement in Vietnam. Today, we face more division, especially over our core values. We will always be a nation of immigrants–that’s what makes us strong.
