Liliana Renteria never thought she'd end up on the cover of a magazine. The Highland Park mother of a Monte Vista Elementary School student isn't glamorous like the models on the cover of Vogue. She doesn't make national security decisions like the politicians on the covers of Time and Newsweek. She hasn't starred in a sitcom or written a tell-all novel like the celebrities on the cover of People.

Re "Threatened by faith," Opinion, Dec. 11 Although I am an atheist, I am not an angry one. Like Rabbi Michael Gotlieb, I do not feel threatened by the Nativity scenes that for nearly 60 years were put up in Santa Monica's Palisades Park. But if Gotlieb really thinks there should be Nativity scenes during the holiday season, why not erect some around his own Westside Congregation? If Gotlieb thinks this might be offensive to his congregation or regarded as an inappropriate expenditure of contributions, perhaps he can understand the reaction of residents who are atheists, Muslims, Hindus or others to Christian displays on public property.

As an educator at a drug abuse prevention program, Alma Cervantes would visit Eastside classrooms and facilitate dialogue with a circle of Latina mothers. She spoke passionately about AIDS prevention in a way that addressed everyday issues facing them. "I was concerned that Latinas were the last to be educated about AIDS," said Cervantes, who grew up on the Eastside. That was more than a year ago. Today those same issues are being discussed in classrooms as far away as New York.
