Medicine Lodge, Kansas's Locally Owned And Operated Newspaper

Opinion / Religion - October 5, 2015

To the Editor,
As I sat on the corner by the Forsyth building and saw our U.S. flag come to the ground – I shed tears. Someone asked me if I was okay – I said yes – I was so impressed and nostalgic as I thought of how our Dad revered the U.S. flag and what it stands for. When I asked Dad what was his proudest moment, he said it was when he got his citizenship papers and said the Pledge of Allegiance. Our parents gave all of us six children flags for our homes.
I wish a big “Thank You” to all who had even a small part in the celebration we call the Peace Treaty – it was great.
Ada Lillieqvist Mitchell

Letter to the Editor:
I had the good fortune of attending the Peace Treaty Pageant activities on Sunday, September 27. I feel compelled to comment and yet, I hardly know where to begin. The magnitude of events only beg the question – how long and hard did everyone work to produce such an extraordinary performance? I was imbued with a sense of Kansas pride as I considered the purpose and passion of the folks who comprise Medicine Lodge and its environs.
Thank you, one and all, for the experience of a lifetime.
John A. Wilson
