I felt deep sadness as I read of Jerry Oâ€™Malleyâ€™s murder (News, March 3-10). I felt sad for Jerry, the boy who murdered him, and for all of us. The act of a child killing for excitement is a wake-up call for all of us to lobby against violence. Letâ€™s make the merchants of violence responsible for the values they promote. Let Jerryâ€™s kind and gentle spirit prompt us to promote non-violence.
