Hereunder I have copied a letter sent by Dr Arnold Mindell to papers in
Portland and Eugene regarding shootings in schools.

Underneath that is the details of a public forum being held on the subject
at Springfield High School, Oregon, on Tuesday 5/26.

I hope that some of you (staff, students, family) in the SVS community
nearby may be able to attend, to listen and/or be heard.

Best regards,
Jonathan
