Re: “Beyond the Bust” (GT, 3/3): Regarding the presence of George Washington in Watsonville, I think of him as a window into the past. There is a beginning to every story.
Discussing how democracy began is an opportunity of learning from the past, as part of creating a better future. There are new heroes yet to be immortalized—Dolores Huerta, Leon Panetta and many other contemporaries leading us toward “a more perfect Union.”
What the Plaza in Watsonville needs is more art to inspire us all on this epic journey to freedom, and our community has the artistic talent to make that a reality. Shout out to the creative spirit: Let’s not dwell on division.
