Letters to the Editor

Vashon's Mark A. Goldman is honest and loyal

Andrew Schwarz’s meaningful comments about solidarity (Beachcomber, Letters to the Editor, Aug. 13) were well taken.

However, he lost some solidarity by claiming that Mark Goldman has a personal agenda.

In fact, Mark Goldman is not a man of denial, but a man of truth, loyalty, trustworthiness, sincerity, genuineness and honesty.

Schwarz should consider a meeting with Father Tryphon (of the All-Merciful Saviour Orthodox Monastery in Dockton) to learn to better understand the difference between denial and truth, that truth suggests conformity with facts or reality — and that the result will lead to a friendship between Andrew and Mark, one of the finest human beings I have ever known.

True friendship leads to a better world.

— Hans F.W. Stierle
