I was saddened to hear of the passing of the Rev. Billy Graham. I grew up listening to the likes of men such as Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, the Rev. Robert Schuller and, now, the Rev. Billy Graham.

Those men had tremendous influence on the heart, soul and values of America. They constantly reminded the people of how they should act toward one another, regardless of race or religion, and they led by example.

They were the nation’s moral compass, and heaven only knows this country certainly needs one.

Pope Francis has a lot more weight on his shoulders, now.
