I Won’t Back Down   

By Unknown

Bana Varnon is a true heroine. I thought Caroline Zaayer did a great job, over the phone no less, bringing us these inspiring words from Ms. Varnon (Drop Cap, June/July): "Definitely never back down when someone tells you that they don't have to explain themselves to you or that they have more authority and more power than you. Never back down. Never stop fighting for what you believe in." I wish more of the reporters in the White House and Pentagon press pools took those words to heart.
