Courage

OPINION
May 12, 1985
Congratulations to our President. It is wonderful to have a Chief Executive with guts. President Reagan is well aware that neither he, nor you, nor I, can change the Holocaust. So he has the serenity, and, by his action, provides ample evidence for us all to profit from, to accept that dismal part of history. He has the courage, and he gives ample evidence of that continuing courage, when, in spite of bleating from all sides, he stood proud, and, as an American, he gave added impetus to the gradually healing wounds of a terrible time.

Not long after California hosted the Special Olympics, CBS provided a wonderful hour of TV programming featuring a climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro by a group of developmentally disabled persons. It took great courage for the athletes to make that awesome climb; it also took courage for CBS to present "Let Me Be Brave," as well as for the sponsors who endorsed it. The program was real, heartwarming and entertaining. It was TV at its best. Sanford M. Gage, Beverly Hills

IN the thousand words or so Charles McNulty wrote on the tiny tempest surrounding the New York Theater Workshop's canceled production of "My Name Is Rachel Corrie," somehow he couldn't find the space to mention the reasons why some might object to its portrayal. Instead he wrote breathlessly, and uncritically, of the theater world's "courage" and "brave" and "progressive vision." He tells readers that something that is controversial doesn't need "balance." [" ... the value of 'balance' ... has rendered the network news impotent."

I would like to commend The Times for its fine piece of work. At long last your readers were given a glimpse of the inside workings of the Israeli justice system. The editorial showed professionalism and courage in uncovering contradictions that exist in the so-called "only democracy in the Middle East." MOHAMMED KHAN Rosemead

Have we not had enough of Steve Howe's "never-ending story?" When are the morals and class needed to project an upstanding team image? Is it lack of courage on the part of Dodger management or just lack of scruples? L. CRAIG Altadena

Several days ago my car was almost broadsided by a young man who failed to stop for a stop sign. He was talking on his cell phone while driving. Isn't there one legislator with the courage to introduce a bill to make this practice illegal? TRUDI SILVERS Los Angeles

To the many supporters of the opposition, I congratulate you for your bravery and courage.

Regarding "Life After 187," Oct. 15, in which you interviewed Vladimir Cerna. Cerna is more American than most Americans. America was founded and preserved by those who had the courage to stand in the face of grave opposition--by those who had a vision of sacrifice for the greater good. Only the purely ignorant would rebuke Cerna as non-American. I was a teacher in a largely Latino school when the vote on Proposition 187 was reported. I know the fear it bestows on the Latino community.
