Join the peace jam

Dear Editor;This is in reply to Judith King’s March 8 letter to the editor asking why no members of the Roaring Fork Peace Coalition steering committee have responded to her letters attributing a variety of political agendas, including anti-Semitism, to the RFPC. I am a member of the steering committee; however, I write as an individual responding.I find Judith’s letters to be admirable in their articulation and knowledge of the situation in the Middle East. However, they have nothing to do with the goals, principles and activities of the RFPC. Instead, they seem to constitute an airing of differences with one other member, which is irrelevant and, frankly, getting to be very tiresome.It saddens me that the reputation of an organization, such as the RFPC, which has such humanitarian goals, stands to be damaged by accusations that have no basis in fact.I urge those who would join in RFPC activities, physically and in spirit, to disregard the erroneous claims being made and join us in these upcoming event: our yearly Peace Jam, a benefit concert, at the Colorado Hotel on Friday, March 23, starting at 7:30 p.m.Pat GirardotGlenwood Springs
