God is what we need

Dear Editor:

Please print the following letter to Pitkin County officials:

I want to thank you for your very worthwhile decision on the Grace Church and Christian Church that teaches love, respect, morals, decency, honesty and helpfulness to others.

Darnell Scott (her daughter was killed at Columbine school) wrote the following poem:

Your laws ignore our deepest needs

Your words are empty air

You’ve striped away our heritage

You’ve outlawed simple prayer

Now gunshots fill our classrooms

and precious children die

You seek for answers everywhere

and ask the question “Why?”

You regulate restrictive laws

through legislative creed

and yet you fail to understand

that God is what we need

Once again thank you for allowing the Grace Church to be a part (an important part) of Pitkin County.

Ruth B. Perry
