Letter to the editor: Ground Zero without prayer ‘simply unbelievable’

By Marilyn Pistocco

McALESTER — Editor:

I have never written a letter to the editor before, but now feel compelled to do so.

Have we here in America truly decided that a prayer or even the mention of God at the dedication ceremony of the Ground Zero Memorial on 9/11 is to be banned? Really? Are we honestly coming to this in our country? I hope not.

Enough said; simple unbelievable.
