Martyrs Wanted

February 27, 2006 | 2 Comments

The New York Daily News today premiered Big Town, Big Heart: Celebrating New Yorkers Who Make a Difference, a feature that spotlights people of “every age and every background who go the extra mile to make a positive difference in others’ lives.” Today’s hero is Frank Jump, a gay elementary school teacher who was given five years to live when diagnosed as HIV-positive — in 1986. Dawn Eden runs the new section, fulfilling a childhood dream that replaced her crusade to end “moments of silence” in the public schools.

God won’t know who to reward unless He reads about them somewhere. And He doesn’t read the New York Times (not for that purpose), so please contact Dawn at the Daily News at the e-mail address provided at the end of the feature if you know someone who deserves recognition in this life or the next.

    The whole Mr. Jump thing puzzles me. He is not contributing. He is obstructing. If he would just go ahead and die his teaching position could be filled by someone who would live long enough to collect the associated pension. Mr. Jump will NEVER live that long. He’s simply blocking a needy person from obtaining employment.

    It’s really unfortunate. I say when it comes to dying of AIDS, don’t linger, instead, as Van Halen put it, just go ahead and JUMP.
