Practice What You Preach

Practice What You Preach

Dear Editor;

Professional protestor Reverend Al Sharpton as an outspoken vanguard in his search for truth and justice should try and practice in his own backyard.

In the long run Reverend Sharpton would feel justified if he used his energy and preaching expertise to address New York City public and high school students in their school auditoriums.

Speaking to his audience convincingly, firmly, and with authority the Reverend should stress the importance of learning, continuing education, the benefits of striving for a worthwhile career, whether in the professional or the varied vocational positions, and a respect for life.

If through these efforts an effective turn-about change for the better is seen via the attitude and accomplishments by the students, then Reverend Al Sharpton will have succeeded where most highly paid New York City school chancellors failed.
