Va rog sa acceptati sincere scuze din partea celor mai multi care nu gindesc
Sint profound jignit si jenat ca un Czernowitzer poate fii atit de lipsit de

Subject: [czernowitz2006] please vote!
I'm still trying to make some sense of the 29 messages I found in my
e-mail account this morning, out of which 25 or more were related, directly
or not, to my unfortunate announcement that I would be able to join the
Reunion. Most of them (I will give no names here, but.Thank you!) were
actually telling me not to become discouraged. Yet, the most recent message
"Jane, You do not understand. You are not welcome at the reunion. I hoped
my letter would make this obvious. Please do not come, you are a stranger at
an intimate meeting. Dece nu intelegeti? Noi nu vrem ca dumneavostra o sa
vine cu noi la Cernauti. I hope you will have the decency to announce that
you will not come to the reunion, and really will not come."
Now what? I want you to know that I am so sorry that it had to come to
this. I had no idea, when I first thought about going along, that I was
going to hurt the feelings of even one person. I had no idea that such
strong emotions were going to surface once I'd give a definite positive
answer. Once more, I am sorry.
As I would very much like to join the Reunion, and would find it rather
inappropriate to ignore the welcoming words of the many people who told me
that they had nothing against my going along, I strongly support the opinion
that a vote is necessary.
How about making a list of "undesirable people" (I hope this doesn't sound
too childish!) and let the majority vote us in or out? I think it's only
"decent" if done that way.
For all it's worth, please note that I'm neither a journalist, nor a
filmmaker, and I never even came upon the idea of taking pictures or
interviews or of filming (none of which I'm actually planning on doing-I was
hoping I could just TALK to PEOPLE) until I was told that I shouldn't do
Please do put a quick end to all this, not for my sake, but for the sake
of the Reunion proper and, until then, of the list and the group, that is,
of all the nice people out there who deserve better than to have to read
such polemics every day.
It's out of my hands now. The decision is yours, and I promise to bow to
