Letter to the Editor, New York Times, 24 June 2018

This letter was published weeks before the Trump-Putin Summit. Every word could have been published today.

Wake up, America! Our democratic institutions are under attack — from within.

To the Editor:

Many of us watch these developments in international relations with a mix of sadness, anxiety and extreme anger. It’s almost as if President Trump were saying to us, well, the system that enormously benefited me and my generation for the last 70 years was wonderful, but you don’t need it and can’t have it.

Most infuriating, many of the people now rapidly trying to destroy what took generations to build and maintain won’t be around to see the aftermath. But we will, and so will our children. We need to start voting all these people out in November and begin the hard work of repairing the damage.

D.P.D., Seattle

Stay tuned.
