I am devestated to hear the tragic news about Letizia Zindell! My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to her and her mom, family, and friends. I knew Letizia through my daughter Rachael,they went to high school together and were cheerleaders together. She was a beautiful, intelligent girl that certainly had a very promising future ahead of her. Letizia and her mom were such nice people! Something seriously needs to be done about protecting women with restraining orders that don't protect them! I hope our dear friend Letizia is not going to be remembered as another statistic! If the judicial system can't protect women, maybe society needs to step up and organize a group to protect our women like "The Guardian Angels!" I am one person and I am willing to do whatever it takes to protect all women from men who are on restraining orders, set free, without any psychological evaluation/counseling to go out and kill their victims! Please don't let Letizia die in vain!

I was a friend of Lisa at Central. She was a wonderful friend and a sweet girl. My prayers and heavy heart go out to her parents and those who loved her. As a pastor, I deeply encourage those who are hurting to turn to God and the Bible for the answers to troubling questions.

Restraining orders can only do so much. I recently completed a Master's Degree program at Boston University, and earned my Master's of Science in Criminal Justice. There were several classes, and several papers which needed to be done. Still with all of the formal education I received, nothing was more priceless than the lessons I learned in the book, The Gift of Fear, by Gavin de Becker. As a woman, as a victim, as a role model, as a mother, as a student . . . I believe in my heart that all we can ever do, is speak openly and honestly about the underlying causes of power and control, and educate our children, so that they become aware of the danger signs. I am very sorry for the loss of this young lady.
