We attempt to teach them to "love thy neighbor,' be he white, black, red, disabled or even heterosexual. We at- tempt to teach them the 'family value' that all people are equal and have value, so treat others as you would like to be treated. There are many other 'family values' we attempt to teach them, such as honesty, sharing, kindness and open- mindedness. But the value of love and acceptance of others and self are by far the most important. Perhaps, if every- one would attempt to teach 'family val- ues' of love and acceptance of both others and serf, teen suicides and teen pregnancies could be reduced. C. hlldren are all too often taught that if tl~ey don't fit into the "traditional family value system,' they are unac- ceptable as family members, members of society or human beings. I thank God each day that my children will always fit into my 'family values" and that I have always fit into my parents' 'traditional family values.' Men like Sen. Edward Kennedy and Rep. Barney Frank are men who speak of equality for all. Not just a select few who fit a stereotypical role of the so- called American dream. We're all Ameri- can and we all have dreams. I person- ally have dreams of peace and accep- tance throughout this great nation we call home. Does any other American have the right to kill those dreams in the name of "tradition?' Stevea R.

I have a daughter and three grand- daughters. I would respond exactly the way that President Bush and Vice Presi- dent Quayle did when questioned about the right of their daughters/grand- daughters to make up their Own minds if they should find themselves "in trouble'.

Governor Clinton certainlywould not be here today had he not been born. Neither would Gaff Colson and neither would I. I doubt if it would have made much difference from a Malthusian point of view; nevertheless, I am glad that Governor Clinton, Gaff and I were born. I am not happy that abortionists have plied their trade, both legally and illegally, in my lifetime. I regret those fetuses who have been and will con- tinue to be aborted. I also regret those countess fetuses, not aborted, who were born alive only to die in poverty of disease, neglect, abuse and starvation. However, I tend to agree with Barbara Bush who said Lhls should not be a political issue. Look It up! Robert It.
