Jan and I were deeply moved by the horrifying depiction of the starvation and suffering the Yemenese people are going through. This disaster is occurring without much world-wide attention!
I want to thank everyone who helped put on the Yemen Awareness Event on January 20th at the Ezekial Bates Lodge. It was a sobering on one hand, yet the music and quiet support from a good number of Attleboro residents were uplifting. I heard that $750 was raised to help the Yemenese and Special Olympics!
Congratulations on opening our hearts. I was educated and personally embarrassed that I was not aware of the genocide in Yemen. But I plan to go to Congressman Joe Kennedy’s office soon to learn more about what Joe and Congress are doing to help the Yemenese.
Thank you to Aaron and the rest of the Lodge members who helped us become aware of this suffering in Yemen.
Ty Waterman, candidate for State Representative, Attleboro.
