My Dear Community:
Our daughter called from Atlanta this morning around 6.00a.m., and said, 
"Dad, do you know what is happening in our Moscow?" Her words were 
frightening; the rest is horrendous news for our town.
I have personally known several of our local Police Force. Having lived 
here and loved this community for decades, this is by far the most 
tragic event that I can recall. When
some suffer, we all suffer; and when some die, part of us dies....and we 
agonize as to why......
Our grief is enormous......heartfelt condolences to the family of the 
bereaved, brave Lew Newbill...and our most sincere good wishes, hopes, 
and prayers for the recovery of Officer Brannon Johnson.
Let's also sincerely hope that a tragic event such as this can encourage 
all of us to think in terms of community harmony and to be genuinely 
more tolerant and accepting of others.....
Ghazi family
