Letter to the editor: Arts deserve support

To the editor,

I was saddened to read George Will’s comments regarding the arts. In our fiercely divided world, shouldn’t we search out, embrace and celebrate our shared emotions, dreams, aspirations and memories? When weapons and generals are forgotten we continue to seek out and learn from the cave paintings of France, the statuary of ancient Egypt, the plays and poetry and architecture of the Greeks and Romans. Our arts are the family photos of our universal humanity. They deserve our support.
