Simon's commencement speech an inspiring call to action

As one who knew him at the University of Maryland, it was inspiring to read David Simon's Georgetown University commencement address ("'We still have to fight. So for God's sake, fight,'" May 25).

It is no surprise that Mr. Simon has not wavered and continues to confront ambivalence and challenge hypocrisy when he sees it.

His passionate message that "there cannot be two American experiments, one for the fortunate and another for the rest" was an inspiring call to action for more than just the Georgetown graduating class to continue the fight for what is fair and just.
