Letters to the Editor

Loved the story

I am writing to thank Worcester Magazine for a great article on my band, Zonkaraz. Erik Radvon is a very talented writer and he found a new way to write about our band that was fresh. The reunion held at the Hanover was wonderful. The Hanover is beautiful and they were a pleasure to work with. We had a large crowd that danced and cheered all night. We give props to WoMag for helping us and we are sure they helped greatly getting the word out. There should be no doubt that Worcester Magazine is Worcester. They were very friendly, cooperative, professional and truly understand their place in the community. If my experience is any example, Worcester Magazine is going to be around as long as they want and will continue to be a nice alternative voice for the city.

Dear editor,

In “Faces of Violence” (WoMag, Nov. 4, 2010), writer Erik Radvon and photographer Steven King paint a compelling picture of teen violence in Worcester and our community’s response.  Thank you for giving clear focus to this issue.
It’s encouraging to see the developing collaboration between the police, community organizations, and citizens – all focused on breaking the cycle of violence by offering realistic alternatives to gang involvement for at-risk youth.  In this regard, the non-profit Center for Nonviolent Solutions has developed a website www.nonviolentsolution.org that links people who want to contribute time, talent, or money with community groups that need help in order to expand their efforts to build nonviolent solutions. 
The staff and volunteers at community organizations on the front lines of the struggle to engage at-risk youth need our support.  As Martin Luther King said over 50 years ago “Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness.  We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love.” Have you tried a nonviolent solution today?
 
Sincerely,
John Paul Marosy,
Worcester
Board Member, Center for Nonviolent Solutions
