Graffiti: a different interpretation

Posted: October 4, 2012 - 3:21pm

It is with sincere gratitude that I thank Jo Going for her courageous letter.
I also appreciate Michael Armstrongs article on the graffiti that appeared in many places in town two weeks ago. In my opinion he missed a crucial point. When I saw the vandalized art wall, I wondered, What has just happened in our community to prompt this?
Graffiti can be a direct response to the sense of silence ... in response to trauma. I dont condone defacing property. There are times it is necessary to say, acknowledge publicly, when something has happened.
What was this youth saying that may have a different interpretation than those offered by Armstrong? What has happened that could trigger this outcry?
With deep respect,
Debi Poore
