Letter: Get to know your neighbors

Sauvageau writes, "In the old days, people would visit their neighbors and find out if one of us in the neighborhood was in trouble or needed help. It was done with love and without a gun."

I look at the news and the sadness, and I am compelled to write this letter.

In the old days, people would visit their neighbors and find out if one of us in the neighborhood was in trouble or needed help. It was done with love and without a gun.

If each of us would visit and get to know their neighbor beside them, they would get to know them and know who needs help—and get the help they need before any of these tragedies happen.

You don't need a gun for that.

Guns should belong to the police department and the military only. Have some respect for the police and give them back their power.
