Human Rights

Until Communist captors locked his dad in a 9-by-9-foot jail cell, Khoa Nguyen did not fully appreciate the battle his father was fighting. As a boy, he remembered him talking about the struggles in his homeland, the basic human rights he believed his countrymen in Vietnam had been denied. His parent's activity with a pro-democracy group finally drew his father from the family's comfortable Garden Grove home to Vietnam, where he hoped to train residents to use nonviolent methods in lobbying for reforms.

No money, no park Re "A park left vulnerable," Feb. 25 The one thing that will save Mitchell Caverns (and other shuttered state parks) is the one thing California probably will not do: The state should sell the park to someone who will take care of the place. Owners take far better care of their property. Sure, any buyers would want to make the park profitable, but what's wrong with that? With a little investment and promotion, Mitchell Caverns and other parks like it could become tourist attractions to an extent they never have been previously.

The President has made human rights a major topic during the summit talks. It is amazing to me he would condemn the Russians, when this country supports with billions of dollars a year, Israel, a country that is killing and imprisoning the Arabs. These Arabs are not the terrorists who have been produced by injustice. These are the men, women and children who were living in that land when the Jews took it. They have no voice in the government. They have no human rights. How many have they killed with America's blessings?

Human rights are being violated all over the world, including this country. The violator identifies a person as bad or less than human. Then the violator can justify anything he does to him. He can repress, torture or kill--and often does. This goes on all over the world--in China, Bosnia, Sudan--even in our country. We must realize that every human being--no matter how poor, how despised, how much an exile--has a worth that infinitely exceeds all the wealth in the world. No one should be deprived of security, dignity, freedom.
