24 Jul Khalid’s Corner: The Community Has Failed Betty Reid Soskin
Words of Wisdom from Community Elder, Khalid Elahi
I was shocked to hear that someone broke into 94-year-old Betty Reid Soskin’s house and savagely beat and robbed her. That lady should have been protected in her community. Nothing is safe in the community nowadays. Even the watcher must be watched. Wherever this happened in Richmond, the brothers in that community should be like bloodhounds to find out who did it and citizens arrest the fool. We all should be treating this like it’s our own granny. It shouldn’t be that easy to violate anyone like this, especially an elderly lady. That lady’s community has failed her.
