Letter: A touching tribute to parental love and a son’s courage

Re “Dear Mrs. Kaepernick: Every son should have a mother like you” (Editorials, Sept. 26): Much of what we read these days about the chaotic state of our country and our world makes us clench our teeth. However, The Sacramento Bee editorial board's letter to Colin Kaepernick's mother brought tears to our eyes and hope to our hearts. The straightforward tribute to parental love and to a son’s courage to go forward and live the values he was taught properly celebrates qualities that are desperately needed if our society is to be healed.
