Viewpoint: Community effort and prayer

When a complaint forced Lee County to stop a pre-game prayer during Friday night football, the citizens of Lee County bristled.

Then, they got busy.

They organized an impressive effort to turn the legal moment of silence into a chilling crowd-recitation of The Lord's Prayer.

In organizing, they were swift and efficient, using local and social media to build momentum and support.

The passion they displayed is both impressive and inspirational.

And regardless of whether you agree with their mission, their efforts are commendable.

It sure makes you wish for more grassroots efforts like this, to help us get deserving community projects done...

The determination and dedication by those citizens are what make the United States of America great…
