Description

This letter is addressed to President Ford, Senators Kennedy and Brooke, Governor Dukakis, Representative Moakley, and Mayor White, all elected representatives of this lawyer from South Boston. The writer expressed a concern for their hometown of South Boston. The letter details their understanding of the political philosophy behind the United States, and how neighborhood pride entered into that equation. For this author, busing students out of their neighborhoods goes against the ideals on which the country was founded.
