This I Believe. Ronald Kurtz is a twenty-year-old electronic technician, third class, in the United States Navy. He was born in Brooklyn, New York and grew up in the Bronx, attending Evander Childs High School. After graduating in 1951, he signed up with the Navy. When his enlistment is up, he plans to go on with the technical training which he began in service. In a letter to his mother, which she kindly shared with us, this young sailor put his ideals and his hopes for the future into words. Here is Ronald Kurtz.
I believe that God is nature. Chance could not have made the world we live in. We could not have come from water and rock alone. The trees, the snow, the sea, a flower--I believe the beauty that it springs is the beauty that is God.
