Letter to the editor | Stand up for the truth

June 25, 2013 

My son died as an Army medic in Ramadi, Iraq.

He had closed all of his emails with, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing” (Edmund Burke).

Although not his quote, he used it to remind us all that men and women need to stand by the truth.

Chuck Franzetta (“Separating himself,” CDT letters, Thursday) and others say we are “wallowing in the past.” This will not go away until justice has been served!

Nothing has factually tied Joe Paterno to Jerry Sandusky’s actions. Sandusky is the guilty party — not Paterno, not the people of State College, not the students and not the football players.

Paterno’s entire record shows he valued education over wins.

Tearing him and his family down, tearing the community apart is what people who want to allow these injustices to stand are doing — not those fighting against evil.
