In response to Alisha M. Jackson's letter in Sunday's paper "Not a warm, safe feeling," I was appalled by the actions of the sheriff's department concerning her family's torturous tragedy. My prayers go out to her and her entire family. We need to let Alisha Jackson and her family know they do not stand alone. I am also a survivor.
Our children are our future. Victims are robbed of their innocence. Join us Sunday, June 24 at 3 p.m. at Bicentennial Park, across from the Wood County Courthouse. Signs will be provided, but feel free to bring you own. Our nonprofit organization is titled "Defenders of Decency." Churches, parents, grandparents or survivors of abuse. Rain or shine. Free parking. Tent provided
Please join us on this journey to voice our opinions and above all protect our children. One person can make a difference. Laws must be enforced to protect the innocent. If not, it is dereliction of duty. Let us stand in unison as one for a great cause. Our children are our future, our grandchildren and generations to come. It takes years and a lot of prayers to go from being a victim to a survivor. Our government has a moral and lawful duty to protect all of us. We demand the city of Parkersburg, our mayor and sheriff's department file reports and respond in a matter of minutes when our children are involved.
All that attend will be greatly appreciated. Heaven knows your name. Alisha Jackson is not alone.
