Letters to the Editor


I congratulate the BND for publishing the article about Arianna Nichols and her crosses. In this day and age of what seems mostly to be bad news, I am astounded and thrilled that you chose to print it on the front page.

And, Arianna, I congratulate you for being a strong witness to your Christian faith by making these crosses and generously giving them to anyone and everyone.

I wear a cross nearly every day unless I am at home, but don’t talk about it unless someone asks. I call it my “weak witness.”

I admire you for your strength at 8 years of age and you have inspired me at 75 years of age to be more verbal about my faith.

Terry Mason, New Baden
