    The causes which Ms. Olds feels so strongly about, particularly the physically challenged and those with serious illnesses are also in peril of funding cuts by the actions and approval of this administration. The War and Programs who will help those she feels so strongly about advocating are those which this administration, through its actions, is hurting. And Mrs. Bush might not be an elected official but she does represent this administration and this WH each time she does a speaking engagement, is a guest or a hostess for a function.

    I applaud this women not only for her letter but her convictions and not being tempted to attend a function which would be high profile for her career. She made the noble decision and I respect that tremendously. She put her beliefs above her personal gain. That is not done nearly enough.

    America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand-Harry S. Truman
