An Honest Beacon

An Honest Beacon

Dear Editor;

I have often enjoyed the columns written by the G-man, and often thought to write, but something always came up to make me put aside the effort.

After I just read his article in today’s Wave, I hesitated no more. I admire you Mr. Toms, for your honesty and your tough decisions. It cannot be easy to be you, seen as a beacon by the African-American community and a thorn I am sure to many non-African-Americans. Yet, you never waver, you tell it like it is, from your point of view and that’s admirable. I agree with you that the heinous attack knew no race, or religion for that matter. There were many people of every race, nationality and religion in those towers, the Pentagon and on those planes.

Out of the ashes had risen a new unity within this nation. We are one. American. Period. There is a new feeling on the streets, in the stores, in the schools. We all feel the pain, the tragedy, the loss and the anger. Like many families we may fight amongst ourselves, but God help any outsider that dares to hurt any one of us. May God help us all, especially those innocent people trapped in a country whose government will ultimately put them in harm’s way for the sake of evil.

I look forward to reading your columns and editorials for years to come.
