Doctor, people like you will make us great again

The last few weeks have been depressing with the direction our country is moving. However, we read a letter to the editor (Courier-Herald, Feb. 8) from Dr. David Schumer from Auburn.

The last few weeks have been depressing with the direction our country is moving. However, we read a letter to the editor (Courier-Herald, Feb. 8) from Dr. David Schumer from Auburn.

He voiced concerns that many of us had with the recent election. But the tone changed when this physician who was intending to retire said that not only was he putting off retirement but that if you lose your insurance when Obamacare is repealed he will help you and be your doctor even if you have no insurance. He said he will be happy to see you because “we are all that remains of our American treasure.”

Dr. Shumer, you are an American treasure and people like you will make America great again.
