Central Pennsylvania is a microcosm of our entire nation.
We appreciate the Centre Daily Times’ efforts to provide balanced coverage of local events, in particular, the Dec. 3 photo of Penn State President Eric Barron with his hands raised during the recent “#BlackLivesMatter” rally and continuing coverage of anguished pleas of students at for equal treatment, heartfelt student support of police officers and the continuing dialogue within the Penn State and local communities.
In that spirit of civil discourse, we would like to draw attention to an open letter to Barron posted at the 3rd Way Collective website, www.3rdwaycollective.org, signed by more than 80 State College residents and students.
Peace and good will toward all.
