Letter to editor

Dear Mr. Editor,

We were called to a short assembly and told that the President had died and that school buses would come in early to take us home. When I arrived home I saw my daddy, arms folded on the kitchen table, head down, tears in his eyes. He said, “We’re in a mess.” It was April 12, 1945.

The radio was on. I heard Harry Truman make a short statement and he ended with, “Pray for me.”

Citizens, on January 20, 2017 we are going to be in a terrible mess.

Pray for us.

Ed Truex
