>> I am furious, sad and outraged that this could
>> happen in our community on a
>> piece of land that has served first as an orphanage
>> and then as a place of
>> healing for so many years for so many people. I
>> understand that the City has
>> erected a cyclone fence across the parking lot but
>> this will have to be
>> removed by Wed when Park Day starts classes.
>>
>> I encourage folks to leave something on the altar
>> that has been erected.
>>
>> I believe we have to collectively respond instead of
>> individually feeling
>> scared and horrified.
