Unity March certainly a love thy neighbor moment

Letter to Canby Herald Editor John Baker from the week of Feb 27

I wanted to thank those who participated in the Unity March recently in downtown Canby. It was nice to see so many young people be involved in sending a positive message about Canby's values as it relates to inclusion and unity.

It was great to see the Canby Herald devote space to the efforts of the high school kids and those in attendance.

I don't think you have to be on one side of the political spectrum or the other to realize that unity is something we desperately need more of in this country.

We have a lot of people trying to "get their way" in terms of how we should be as a country.

I think Jesus said it most succinctly when he told the disciples, "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." We need to practice what He preached far more effectively. I thought the Unity March was a nice part of that.
