I read the Oct. 21 letter, "Maybe absence of Dutch names isn't so bad," by Gil Lyzenga, of Dyer. He was disappointed that in the list of young writers, there were no names with Dutch heritage. Well I would just like to correct him.
My son is one of The Times' Young Voices. His name is Sam Beishuizen, and he is very Dutch.
Sam was editor of Crown Point High School's Inklings and now is at Indiana University. He is a beat reporter for the Indiana Daily Student, covering women's soccer. His article "Right to speak doesn't mean you must talk" was in The Times on Oct. 14.
We are Dutch and proud of it!
