Thank you for shedding light on the life’s work of Daniel Ellsberg (“A nuclear war planner’s warning to U.S. and world,” Jan. 14 Herald editorial).
He is a voice for reason and an American hero. I challenge readers to learn more about his history. Those of us who struggle against the chaos of today’s politics, through a study of history, come to realize that each generation has a battle to fight for protection of our democracy.
My thoughts concerning your editorial are as follows: Ellsberg’s warning is before us. The Pentagon is asking to build bigger nuclear weapons. Trumps advisers are talking of a limited first strike against North Korea. The terror in Hawaii was real and painful — and Trump just completed his most unstable and un-genius week in office.
These are truly scary times. I wonder: What has to happen before reasonable people act?
