LETTERS TO THE TIMES

Innocence and Terror

June 13, 2003

Thank you for the poignant feature on 10-year-old Irwin Orlando Ropero of Colombia and his inadvertent role in yet another of the world's forgotten, brutal conflicts ("A Tool of War at Age 10," June 10). It is just another example of how low human beings are willing to stoop to shock others into submission to their views.

I hope this story will help to give him the recognition in death that he never seemed to have during his short life. My heart goes out to his family. And keep stories like these coming. We need to be reminded.
