President Bush on Volunteerism

July 09, 1989

I was infuriated when I heard President George Bush suggest that volunteerism is the answer to solving social problems in the United States.

My nomination for Woman of the Year goes to Rita Schwerner Bender, widow of civil rights worker Michael Schwerner, for her suggestion to the President that he invite a homeless family to share his home in Kennebunkport, Me., this in keeping with his stated philosophy ("Rights Martyrs' Relatives Speak Bluntly to Bush," Part I, June 24). She is truly a point of light!
