To the Editors of the Mountain Echo:
I read with interest the recent e-mail message sent on behalf of President Newman to all students, faculty, administrators and staff concerning the upcoming panel discussion on the Middle East refugee crisis. The message urges us to consider “the importance of working together to build a more just society” and states that the “world community needs our help.” “What is the community of Mount St. Mary’s going to do?” asks the president. I think President Newman would do well to remember that building a more just society is a process that begins at home. I wonder whether he has considered the implications that his exhortations to the Mount community have for his own recent actions in relation to present and former Mount employees.
