Mr. President, I am the son of a much beloved former president of Honduras who was overthrown in 1963 by a military coup d’etat. I have in my possession the letter of solidarity that President John F. Kennedy wrote to my father. I understand better than you how undesirable it is to have to resort to force. But I ask that you also listen to people who have the ability to be objective in their thinking. As well as being a politician, my father was a physician. Whenever patients who were extremely ill came to him, my father would always say to them, “Go listen to a second opinion”. The love of democracy should never allow us to be blinded.
Unfortunately, second opinions are a hard road for elitist snobs.
