SENTINEL WATCH

'Please unite us'

From the December 6, 2004 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


IN A NEWSREEL OF President Richard Nixon's first inauguration — a time of deep national division over the Vietnam war — a girl of about 12 years stood alone holding high a hand-lettered placard: "Please unite us. " That girl would be about 40 today, but the way things appear she could be holding an identical sign next month at President Bush's second inauguration.
