Mitch Ceasar column / Sun Sentinel 100 Influential Leaders

Last week: Kudos to U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch for his action, which provided the impetus in the awarding of 24 Medals of Honor at the White House this week. These heroes were overlooked because they were not viewed “as equals.” Apparently Jewish and Hispanic soldiers were not considered because of their “background.” Lets hope that acts of sacrifice and valor will now be viewed on their merit and not by their bloodlines.
