Letter to the Editor: Supports Rink Modifications

To the Editor:

I wanted to take a moment to express my support in moving forward with the proposal for modifying the rink at the Potomac Community Center. Given the right environment and opportunities, children with all types of disabilities can thrive and grow to overcome their challenges. The rink is a brilliant opportunity to help bring the community together and build upon the diversity of programming already available at the PCC. In light of the recent events in Connecticut, I can't think of a better way for a community to come together to invest its time, money, and energy than providing a safe and welcoming environment for children, young adults and families with all different types of physical challenges to grow.

I recognize that all too often, a select minority within any community get caught up in over-thinking trivial details and end up overlooking others’ needs. I wanted to take a moment to express my full support and commend you for continuing to maintain an awareness of what's really important in building a healthy and safe community. Please keep up the great work.
