Was it "a Simple Thing"?

MARGARET MACDONALD
Margaret MacDonald, the executive director of the Montana Association of Churches, came up with the idea of putting up the paper menorahs. She thought it would be a "simple thing" for people to do. Yet when she went to hang the menorah in her own window, she had second thoughts:

"With two young children, I had to think hard about it myself. We put our menorah in a living room window, and made sure nobody sat in front of it."

REVEREND PAUL HANSON, FORMER PASTOR, KING OF GLORY LUTHERAN CHURCH
"It was a simple thing, really. I determined to immediately put the menorah up on our front window and yet, in the simple placing of it there, I had a moment of cold sweat, thinking that it could very well be an invitation to have our house attacked."
