Just wanted to say what a wonderful story on the front page (May 31, Pelican Rapids Press article on Class of 2017 graduation).

The headline was “So…what’s the big deal with ‘diversity’?”

I live on Lake Lida and do not have school-age children, but your story and pictures just made me proud to be a member of such an inclusive community. These students will go out into a wider world already having the abilities to navigate the multicultural societies they find themselves in.

They won’t need to “adjust” because they’ve already experienced it.

No big deal.
