Breakfasts with Dad

Regarding the June 12 Home Forum essay, “Breakfasts that nourished my dreams”: This was an appropriate story for Father’s Day weekend. The author’s evocation of leisurely spending time at the breakfast table jogs personal memories for me, especially as I note younger generations skipping breakfast or running out with an energy bar. 

And the singing: My father would sing “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” or “Jimmy Crack Corn,” and it set a cheerful tone for the day ahead.

Muslim coverage

Regarding the June 23 Monitor Daily article “Ramadan? There’s an app for that”: I so appreciate the way the Monitor covers stories about the Muslim community, their culture, and beliefs. The more people learn to understand Muslims, the less opportunity there will be for ignorance, hatred, and prejudice.

‘Suburbia’s new face’ cover story

Regarding the June 5 cover story, “Suburbia’s new face”: This was an excellent article with deep research and outstanding photos. 

This article made me sign up for future Christian Science Monitor material. The article was sent to me by a friend who long ago lived in Pearland, Texas.

Thoughtful investigation

Regarding the June 6 Monitor Daily story “Why the internet remains an ISIS training ground”: This is an excellent story! These are the nuanced topics – the gray areas – that deserve thoughtful investigation. Thank you and keep it up.
