Dennis M. Robinson, Jr., president of the Perry Hall Improvement Association, released the following statement.
As residents of Perry Hall, we certainly do not need a reminder that no community is immune from violence in schools. Words simply cannot describe the tragedy that occurred at an elementary school in Newtown, CT last Friday. Many of us are experiencing sadness, anger, and a range of other emotions in response to this tragedy. Many of us are also experiencing the challenge of trying to comprehend something that is beyond comprehension, while trying to assure our children (and ourselves) that our children are safe in schools. Please keep the community of Newtown, CT in your thoughts and prayers as they struggle through this extremely difficult time.
