Dear Mr. President:
This morning, as you returned to the White House from the Church
of the President, you and your lovely wife Barbara passed through
Lafayette (Peace) Park.
Your stroll through the Park, in my opinion, highlighted two most
First, it was very encouraging to hear you say that you share our
view on nuclear weapons. We would be very pleased if you would
sign the enclosed petition to help the Cause.
Second, you understand that we are in the Park on a 24-hour basis
because you've seen us.
This point is significant because, as you recognized, our
24-hour, around-the-clock "vigil" in Lafayette Park is an
effective "demonstration." This communication is entitled to
protection under the First Amendment. However, the Department of
Interior is imposing a new regulation which would limit
individuals to three (3) cubic feet of "property" in Lafayette
Park. This regulation would leave us the choice of having enough
literature to pass out, or enough blankets to keep from freezing
to death ... but not both.
Don't allow the Department of Interior to act in Lafayette Park
like the Chinese Communist Party in Tiananmen Square.
At first, because of his warlike nature, the ancient Emperor
Asoka of India was known as "the terrible," but he changed and
began using influence to educate the various antagonistic peoples
as to the necessity of sharing resources to create a peaceful and
just society. Now history remembers him as "the beloved."
Mr. President, we pray that you will take the opportunity to lead
the modern world so all humanity can live in peace & harmony. If
you decide to take this opportunity you will be respected by
humanity, and honored by history.
