America built on foundation of love

To the editor:
    This letter is unique in its own right because it involves one of the most precious and misused words in our vocabulary. The word love.

    The word love can mean so many things, love of life, love of a mother and father, a grandmother and grandfather, love of a person’s career, your children and grandchildren, love of country and the list goes on.
    The word love is referred to throughout the entire Bible. The most famous being, “for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
    Jesus told His disciples, “That ye love one another, as I have loved you.”
    America the Beautiful was founded out of love for God and each other. What a wonderful place America could be if We the People could return to the days of yesteryear.
    Can it happen, I think not! There are too many people like myself that just can’t let go of the past hurts and anger of the past.
    However, regardless of what we humans do or say, Jesus is still saying … I love you.
