Letter from Khaleel Mohammed

Dear Mr. Haulman;

I am from Guyana, where the horrible Jonestown tragedy occurred. I note the furor over what should be a peaceful construction of a memorial. May I state that I have followed the unfolding of events from the time of the first news to now, so many years later, when we ought to forgive, but not to forget. As a Guyanese, as a professor of religion, and as someone who always wishes that the public remain informed of the things that can affect our sanity, I strongly support the cemetery and the group of people who have made the effort for a memorial successful thus far. I trust you will remain in support of them.

Respectfully yours,
Khaleel Mohammed
