Family Represents True Meaning of Love

August 20, 1992

Bosnia-Herzegovina (Serbs versus Muslims and Croatians), Northern Ireland (Protestants versus Catholics), Middle East (Israeli Jews versus nearly every Muslim nation), India (Sikhs and Muslims versus Hindus), Lebanon (Christians versus Muslims and Syria), Crete (Greeks versus Turks), Spain (Basques versus Spaniards), the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, the Nazi Holocaust, and on and on. Seemingly, it never stops.

But just when a very convincing case could be made that religion is the main cause of the world's strife and grief, along comes the wonderful Bisgaard family of La Canada Flintridge ("Still Together As Father Wished," Aug. 12).

By opening their hearts and home to the four orphaned Torres Mendoza children from Mexico City, they have demonstrated the true meaning of what religion and love ought to be but too often, sadly, isn't.
