Thanks so much for coming to Worcester and share personally a little bit of your experience. The part of your book that I enjoyed the most was the comment written about your father (page xxi) when you visited Bunker Hill with your family and your father became angry ans said "This place is for stupid people" How clearly defined was your father about how valuable life is and how mistakenly bombarded our society is. In other words, we need to change our beliefs totally if we want to live in a just world. "How we dare to glorify those who kill, even though they kill in the name of freedom- freedom from what?..... Thanks for what you do. Thanks for believing that there still hope. Thanks for inspiring others. Thanks for your transparency. Thanks for sharing.
