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.

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