Cruz a genuine hurricane heroine
Dear Editor: She’s sort of a little lady ,not overly old, has light breeze blown hair under a somewhat worn baseball cap shading her innocuous glasses, is simply attired and her name is Carmen Yulin Cruz .
She is the mayor of San Juan, capital of the U.S. island of Puerto Rico. She’s “the voice of one crying out in the wilderness,” on the hurricane-devastated island for water, food, medicine and aid especially for fear of disease.
The visiting delicately-coiffured, wellfed, thirstless Commander in Chief Trump, tossing paper towels showered her with ridicule and insults. Despite all the hurricane forewarning, it is puzzling why the U.S. navy with all its helicopters and resources was absent in this desperate time of need.
Maybe its still jousting with lumbering freighters in Asia. Meanwhile Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz valiantly battles on for her people.
She is a genuine heroine born of the hurricane. Joe. Schwarz Penticton
