Letter to Editor
Excerpt from my book “What We Blacks Need To Do” —`A robber approached a man on a dark street pointed his gun and said “give me your money”. The victim opened his coat so that he could reach his wallet. The robber saw that the victim was wearing a white collar around his neck. When he looked at the building behind the victim, he saw a Catholic church. When the robber realized he was robbing a Catholic Priest, he said. Father please keep your money and forgive me. The priest forgave the robber and offered him a cigarette to help calm his nerves. The robber said, thank you Father, I would love to have a cigarette but I can’t because I gave up cigarettes for Lent (smile).
