Regarding “Human shield protects assaulted parishioners,” Feb. 17, page 1:

Thank you for your beautiful article bearing witness to the events of Feb. 5 as they transpired in response to the hate hurled at immigrant churchgoers the week prior. Those who aligned to protect our Spanish-speaking neighbors were of a broad crossection of traditions, religions, nationalities and political persuasions. It was the vastness of love that brought us all together, a love that transcends all cultures and creeds, a love that spoke with a language all its own. Please know that regardless of how each of us who attended this outpouring of humanity contextualizes our experience of God, we were all one that day.
