I was happy to read that Glen Campbell's "Goodbye Tour" concert at the Sandy Amphitheater was a success ("Glen Campbell triumphs over obstacles," Tribune, June 27). I could not attend in person, but I was there in spirit.
Campbell's "The Wichita Lineman" has special significance to me, since I was born in Wichita, Kan. The Trib review noted he also performed "Try a Little Kindness." In today's toxic, turbulent, polarized world of bickering and sniping, I just wish we could have the gentleness of mind that Campbell's songs represent.
Campbell's touring may be bidding a farewell, but his lifelong achievements will stand forever.
