to the people at the Inland Regional Center–you have our support and sympathy

2 Dec

News out today is that a mass shooting has occurred here in the U.S.. This time it is in California and, specifically, at the Inland Regional Center. The Regional Centers are the sites that manage services for the developmentally disabled here in California.

There are mixed reports, including one that the people targeted in this shooting were not affiliated with the Regional Center. Whatever the case, people working at the Regional Centers are heroes every day here. They are the people struggling to keep our underfunded and broken disability services program running. People with disabilities and their families are also present at regional centers for meetings and more.

For those victims of the shooting and their families, I wish I could offer more than this: you have our support and our sympathy.
