If a story arrises, does it reflect the comunity as a whole? Not all the time. I know many stories that dont go into media and it hides the reality to the rest. I think its good to be aware and to educate and at the same time to also display the good in the community as much as the negative.

I dont agree with the Boston bomber on Time magazine for next months issue but the reason its being displayed is its educational. I see both spectrums here so its a double sided sword to me.

Does anyone know the first name of the Dad? I'm wondering if it is an old work friend of mine.
