Take a stand

Letter to the Editor | Thursday, March 26, 2009

I read a letter entitled,”Don’t Hijack Our Day” (March 24). I would counter, “Don’t be so self-absorbed.” Just because it may not be your hot-button issue, protesting is all we can do at this point. Absolutely, the University giving President Obama an honorary award is saying the University is not taking a stand nor supporting the opposition to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. I’m just a simple mom with five children that graduated in 1991. I want Notre Dame to remain Catholic. This is the time to take a stand. Thank you.
