To the editor of THE EAGLE:

Congratulations to all who made the Babe Ruth 16-U World Series possible! A special shout-out to the players and their families who represented the entire nation with grace, grit and dignity. The respect, cooperation, work ethic, support and civility should be a model for the country and the world.

Perhaps with Congress in recess we could bring this wonderful energy into Washington and show our elected officials the way forward!
