Tom Hayden letter
With the recent passing of Sixties hero and icon, Tom Hayden, I was reminded of a short exchange of letters I had with him in 1997. I wrote to Hayden, then a California Senate member about his book, "The Lost Gospel of the Earth: A Call for Renewing Nature, Spirit and Politics". He answered me back with this letter. I had almost forgotten how many books he wrote, including one that will come out posthumously about the Vietnam Peace Movement called "Hell No: The Forgotten Power of the Vietnam Peace Movement". He was a very principled man who influenced many people from his SDS Port Huron statement in 1962 until present. A gentle soul who spoke the truth...demanded it in fact. Many people forget that in 1967 Tom went to North Vietnam and brought home three American P.O.W.s. He just wanted to stop that war...as did most of us.
