The people who write and edit the daily religious article in the Monitor deserve a gold star. On April 19 at about 2:30 p.m. we heard the devastating news on TV about the bombing in Oklahoma City. Still reeling from such frightful news, I found the Monitor in the mail. ''Well, there won't be anything about the bombing in here until tomorrow,'' I thought.
But there on page 17 was a religious article titled ''Protection From Harm.'' It was so reassuring and instructive. It showed me how to think in a helpful way, instead of just feeling sad. I know the Monitor didn't foresee the events of April 19, but the choice of articles was right on the mark.
