To Erin Walsh:, 

I so appreciated your letter to the editor.  It was well written, researched, and a lesson in the history of bigotry in Sparta and Sussex County.  We have come a long way, but looking back, our history, when it comes to bigotry is not above reproach. 

For those who were not aware of this, hopefully they are now.   We should never be satisfied, but constantly open our eyes and fight to change the climate of hatred and injustice towards any person or group.
