The Bloomingdale Library Assault Victim Fund

No doubt many of you have heard about the attack on the young woman returning books to the public library in Bloomingdale. It's a crime so vicious, ugly and senseless that there are simply no sides to take and no issues to debate. Unfortunately, it looks like that might not turn out to be the case in the aftermath. Here's hoping that this doesn't turn into another moral, ethical and, ultimately, political football, like the Terri Schiavo case. The victim and her family have certainly suffered enough without that circus coming to town again.

In the meantime, while we're all still being civil with one another and are at least in agreement that these people are facing unimaginably horrific circumstances over which they have no control, at least we can help. SunTrust Bank has established the "Bloomingdale Library Assault Victim Fund" Call a local SunTrust Bank branch and tell them that you would like to contribute. Please spread the word about this young woman and her family, so that she is not forgotten, and let others know how they can help, too.
