Letter: Don't forget Billy Graham


I was disappointed to read The Daily Tar Heel online this week and see no mention of the Reverend Billy Graham's passing. 

Billy Graham is one of the most famous individuals to ever call North Carolina home. He has literally traveled all over the globe spreading the word of God. 

Furthermore, he has ties to UNC Chapel Hill. He was given an honorary degree from UNC in 1996. I know the year is correct because I was in Kenan Stadium to see my sister graduate and saw Reverend Graham receive his recognition. 

Furthermore, Graham's late son-in-law Danny Lotz was a member of UNC's 1957 National Championship Basketball team. The passing of such an iconic figure in the history of the Tar Heel state deserved a mention in the DTH.
