Objects to inaction

To the editor:

Used to be once a year and now once a month and keeps getting worse. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected families and communities. It is always the same story and after a few months you hear very little about it.

Leaders please get your priorities in order. So many promises at the time are offered but never carried through. I could name so many tragic events from Gabby in Arizona to the current one in a Florida school and closer to home the Parkersburg football coach. Every one could have been prevented if there had been help available and given to the mental individuals needing it. Facilities are closed because there were no funds available to keep them operating. With all the money being asked for to build the wall, it could be much more useful in many other areas.
