At GRAVIS, we deal with a range of social problems in some of the world’s poorest communities, but we realize that developed countries suffer hardship as well. We were shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic shooting yesterday in Newtown, Connecticut, USA. Such extreme violence is almost unheard of in India, and the full extent of the tragedy is incomprehensible. Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers go out to the victims and their families. We hope that the incident will inspire appropriate measures of gun control and mental health treatment to prevent this sort of brutality from ever happening again, in America or any other part of the world.
