Letter to the editor: History in action

Wednesday, January 15, 2014 - 12:01 am

This is a thank-you response for Keith Boreani and all who patiently worked with him to bring a vital piece of history that will linger in our memories forever.

A year ago, I heard about the “National Lampoon” movie from friends, after seeing such a beautiful bus on The Journal Gazette pages on Dec. 31 — a movie from the ’70s has now got my attention as a young person from Somalia; I love to be friends with people like Boreani.

It doesn’t matter the stresses Boreani and all who worked with him might have faced while designing the bus, the bus which reminded me and all others that history can’t be forgotten, nor can it be ignored.

Furthermore, I would have joined if I was aware when Boreani and his team were trying to bring a wonderful piece of history back.

I must extend my thanks to Boreani and his team for making so many smile after seeing history in full gestures — reminding us of President Kennedy’s quote: “A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on.”
