I just read the article discussing the MRFF’s request to USMMA to cover up the Jesus painting in the Elliott M See Room, and I wanted to reach out to say THANK YOU!
I have no idea who the seventeen people are that chimed in to request to have it covered/removed, but feel free to add my name to that list.
I attended KP from 20XX to 20XX, graduating with an Engineering Xxxxx degree and commissioning in the USCG. I am now out of the Coast Guard and enjoying life as a private citizen, but I still recall clearly how I felt as a non-Christian at KP.
I also wanted to thank the Weinstein family personally for writing their book and publishing it. I was given it as a gift after I was accepted to USMMA and it was on my desk shelf all four years that I was at the Academy. On bad days, it would remind me that others felt the same way and that I had just as much of a right to be at KP as anyone else.
I’d always wondered if the family did anything beyond publishing the book, and now I have my answer!
Thanks so much for all you do and I’m excited to see what comes next!
