candlelight vigil for residents of Somerset. . .

A candlelight vigil was held this evening for the residents of Somerset by the Organization of the Northeast.  It received considerable media coverage, which I hope will bring attention to the plight of the mentally ill in Illinois. I believe the organization that coordinated this vigil shares my concern that the events at Somerset are not isolated, but reflect a larger pattern of irresponsible behavior on the part of the state.  If we do not, as citizens, watch the state and hold it accountable, tragedy is sadly predictable.  The vigil brings about public awareness of what is going on. And hopefully from public awareness accountability and responsible decision-making will be more likely. Here are some pics.
