I was very moved by Bernard Levy’s “Reflection on the Fourth of July,” which appeared in the June 30 addition of the newspaper. I think so much of our celebration these days consists of fireworks and where to go to get the best view. Mr. Levy reminds us of the work and dedication of our forefathers, and most of us have forgotten about them. I especially was touched when I read “We were, and still are the hope of many nations and peoples.”

I would like to personally thank Mr. Levy for this beautifully written piece and would be pleased to read more from him.
