Dear Carlos: Thank you for giving me a guided tour of Tijuana City on our last visit. I did not realize that our Media reports of the clashes between Drug organizations and the authorities had had such a devastating impact on fragile businesses in Tijuana that depend upon US tourists. You showed me store after store that had closed because tourists had perceived that they were in danger in coming to Tijuana. The result is that many other “casualties” have occurred like wage earners losing jobs, and the slowing of economic progress that is so vitally needed.  It seems that the “Collateral damage ” caused by sensational  US media reports is much greater than that of the drug lord’s violence itself. I regret that the zeal to grab our attention to sell “stuff”in the US, or to make a headline, drives irresponsible editors print only the sensational fear invoking stories. It would be refreshing for them to print a more balanced assessment of the situation. I walked the streets just last Saturday and neither I nor my friends felt we were in any danger. I am very glad that the Doctors, nurses, medical students and friends that filled our bus this last weekend and crossed the border and work with La Roca, understood the meaning of this statement. “We have nothing to fear except fear itself.”  It is an unfortunate irony that  the people of Mexico should be hurt because their government is cracking down on drug traffickers, who are in business largely because people in the US use drugs.

Thank you for encouraging us all to come, thank you for helping us in Healing Hearts Across Borders to preserver in humanitarian our efforts and to realize that the forces that were making us fearful were the real  enemy, cultivating an even greater distractive force.

Godspeed, Lloyd Turner DDS
