Troubling instance of shameful violence

Published: August 30, 2013

Speaking as the father of an athletic son and daughter, I can only imagine the magnitude of tragedy that the parents of Christopher Lane must be suffering. This story is without a doubt one of the most troubling instances of shameful violence reported lately within the United States. It seems evident now that we all will have to expect more from ourselves, as parents, community leaders and elected public officials so that we may become a combined force. We must make certain that this type of violence is eradicated from every neighborhood in this country before it senselessly takes another innocent life.
