I have been following this tragedy from the beginning...it is so sad on so many levels. The poor child, the family, DSS workers who are working under extremely difficult circumstances BECAUSE they care, DSS board members who are incredible human beings and have been subjected to extreme disrespect by members of the community that they pledged to serve. I have witnessed this become a division of our human community, with the race card thrown out even though members of dss and the board are members of the EBCI. Who in their right mind would say upstanding members of our community would turn a blind eye to this abuse BECAUSE of Aubrey's ethnic origin? I pray for all of us and hope that something positive comes of it. Since Cherokee is a soverign nation, perhaps it would be best for them to have their own social services although that will present many challenges. Be careful what you ask for...you may get it and all that comes with it.
