A Heartfelt Letter to the President of FACT

 We received this a couple of days ago and wanted to share.

"Mr. Stern, hello —

I do not have any issue with cults. I am writing because I spent the weekend in Las Vegas with some friends from across the country. I never travel or take vacation, but this weekend, I got together with them, and it was planned out months ago.

As soon as I got into the Vegas airport, I saw the story about Sharon (on Ha’aretz, of all sites), and over the next few days, whenever I had some time alone, I continued to read. It obsessed me. It haunted me. It really wasn’t a vacation this weekend, because I was so affected by this story.

I know it’s nothing compared to how the story affected/affects you, but it really hit me hard. I am so sorry that this happened. I applaud you for doing your best to turn a negative into a positive with this organization you have started, and the memorial to her, and, also, for taking Kan to court. I wish you much success in getting this piece of shit put behind bars, forgive my language.

I am impressed with your strength. My condolences on your daughter’s passing. I felt I had to write.

Baruch Dayan Ha’emet.

Kind regards,
Josh"
