Wow! I was so impressed with the tone, attention to detail and insights in Kaspar Wilder’s Feb. 8 Maine Voices column regarding the Portland High School rally.

The background information that she shared, and her thoughtful responses to concerns about the rally by Jason Savage, Maine Republican Party executive director, both spoke to a sincere interest in dialogue and an appreciation for alternative points of view.

It makes me even more glad that our granddaughter is a part of the Civil Rights Team at Longfellow School, and it also makes me feel upbeat about the future of our state and country!
