Evil visited this community today
This is another difficult post to write. There are no words. But, silence is not going to help us. Violence against our most vulnerable continues. I do not agree with the headline, “Evil visited this community today.” Rather, evil has been brewing in this community (and other communities) for many years. An important prevention/intervention piece is missing in our culture that allows the perpetrators to devise and commit these acts. In many cases it takes years to escalate the violent thoughts and deeds, plot, purchase weapons, and practice. In most cases, this practice begins on animals.
SALI offers our thoughts and prayers to the community of Newtown.
SALI will continue our fight against violence to any vulnerable member of our community two-legged or four-legged.
