I read with interest Richard J. Goutos' letter "Return prayer to public school" (May 19), describing how in the late 1950s and early 1960s, at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute "a student read a passage from the Bible, then the Lord's prayer was recited ... (and) nobody I know was adversely affected by the practice ... no child was scarred negatively ... no one was forced to participate. " I also attended Poly at that time. The morning ritual was not the problem, as it only lasted a few minutes.

In the middle of a lesson, a senior barged into the classroom with tears in his eyes and handed the teacher a letter. A smile spread across the teacher's face as he read in silence. The teacher then turned to the class and announced that the student had just received a full scholarship to an excellent college. The teen pointed toward the window and whispered, to the teacher, "If it hadn't been for you and this school, I'd be out on those streets selling drugs.

Two of Maryland's greatest self-made men of recent years - Under Armour founder Kevin Plank and Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti - have taken the routine renewal of their companies' marketing agreement and are extending it to a combined philanthropic effort focused on Baltimore City schools and children. Both men see a healthy Baltimore as essential to the well-being of the state (and, not incidentally, their own success), and they say they want to do whatever they can to improve it. Their idea to combine "a little money, a little exposure and a little arm-twisting" to find ways of inspiring city youth and convincing others to join in their efforts has real potential.
