Regarding “Heroes, not victims,” June 2, page 23:

While your editorial is a great attempt at honoring those two men who died and the one that was severely injured, I find your mentioning that likely only Best was Christian a bit off-putting. This is an unfair judgment of these other two men’s religious beliefs and only diminishes the actions of Taliesin and Micah.

Instead of acknowledging our call as human beings to help one another, you call out only the known Christian and set him apart. In reality, all three men’s actions were equally heroic and Best’s Christianity is not a quality upon which we can hold him up as being more heroic. Please honor all three men equally for their actions.
