223. A Nod of Respect

It takes real courage and maturity to side with people with whom you have serious disagreements on other issues and who are effectively criticizing you for racial bigotry and posting rude, juvenile cartoons about you. But this is what Cinta Kaipat has done in her recent letter to the editor in favor of the National Marine Monument.

I almost never agree with you, Cinta, on issues about labor and immigration, but I have more respect for you now. I'm sure this wasn't an easy thing to do, but it was the right thing.

We need the National Marine Monument. Thank you for speaking up.

Good job.
