Makes the Heart Glad

Among the famous buildings near Incarnation is Madison Square Garden. I was walking by there last week as a throng of college students in caps and gowns emerged with their families from what must have been a degree-awarding ceremony.

Although the diversity of the graduates was predictable–a number of different national backgrounds were represented, for instance–it was still touching to see them all. America really is the land of opportunity, and with all the media attention to racial prejudice, it was heartening to see the representatives of many peoples and nations as they prepared to contribute to our common future. —J.
