More Should Have the Courage to Stand Up

Dear Editor,
We have lost another great world leader
– someone who made a true difference. Although I couldn’t care
less about Rosa Parks’ cause, I hold her high on my heroes list –
nearly as high as Yasser Arafat.
Dear Editor,

We have lost another great world leader – someone who made a true difference. Although I couldn’t care less about Rosa Parks’ cause, I hold her high on my heroes list – nearly as high as Yasser Arafat.

As we lose our freedom each year with stacks of laws being passed against us (usually with the excuse to protect us from ourselves), non-violent civil disobedience becomes increasingly necessary to wake up those in “authority.”

May many more have the courage to follow Ms. Parks’ example and stand up to the fascists in their little berets.

Alan Viarengo, Gilroy
