Note. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association ran two ads, "Legacy" and "Crossroads" which have different texts.  The ads are very slightly different than shown, in that they include disclaimer in small print at the bottom.  According to the BGEA, in addition to the ads run in USA Today and the Wall Street Journal, they were to appear in "a number of newspapers in as many as a dozen states over the next few weeks" (including the Columbus Dispatch).
