Dear Editor,

I would like to applaud the NYPD for protecting the statue of Christopher Columbus from vandals.

I'm Grand Knight of St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus Council #5911 in Douglaston. We support the fact that Christopher Columbus, with his faults like the rest of the human race, opened up a new world with unlimited possibilities, which includes freedom for all.

The organization that I belong to was created to help immigrants and the poor. I don't believe removing his statue or destroying it serves any purpose.
