Letter to the Editor: Praise for The National Herald

To the Editor:

Christos Anesti! To all those celebrating Orthodox Pascha, may the blessings of your faith be with you in your heart. Thanks to technology and my apathy, going to church during Holy Week was non-committing. I’ve seen religious services on my iPhone. The pandemic has an adverse psychological effect. Can you blame people being careful being around strangers or in a crowd? Hopefully the virus will be history.

The Easter special issue was a joy. The Viewpoints and Opinions are enlightening. The many interesting articles on all aspects of Hellenic culture is why The National Herald is the best newspaper in America when it comes to informing Hellenic Americans [and] reporting news on Hellenism. A job well done!
