A Plea

People, please.

A terrible tragedy has been perpetrated by anger and hatred. Inflammatory rhetoric, speculation and intolerance will not make it better. Whether speaking to one person in private or to many in a public forum, compassion, reason and facts are sorely needed. Anger is never soothed by more anger.

Please, help reduce your neighbor’s pain and work towards building a sense of community. This is society’s only hope for survival.
