Love Letter

To the editor:

Dear St. Peter Family who received horrible hate mail,

This is our love letter to you. If we were your neighbor, we’d love to tell you these simple things:

-You enrich our community

-Love is love

-No one deserves to be treated horribly

-You make our world better

-We are so glad you live in rural Minnesota

-We would love to buy you a German doughnut next time you’re in New Ulm!
