Letter: Patriotism unfurled

From: Beverly Citizen, MA - Dec 10, 2004

To the editor:
An open letter to Sen. Ted Kennedy

The students and staff of Beverly School for the Deaf would like to express their sincere appreciation for your donation of an outdoor flag for our flag pole.

Following the elections earlier this month, our students became more engaged in the political systems, traditions, and history of our great country. The students were disappointed with the appearance of our old, worn flag and decided to write to you. This new replacement flag will help to represent the vitality of our American democracy and instill the respect of flying such an honored symbol.

Thank you again for taking time out of your schedule and responding to us in such an affirmative fashion. It is nice to know, especially from the perspective of our students, that those individuals empowered with representing 'we the people' are still listening.

Mark E. Carlson
