I would like to take a moment to pass on my heart felt sympathy, not only to the Keyes family, but to all everyone involved with the tragedy at Platte Canyon High School on September 27th. In my eyes, each and every person that was in that school, each and every person that responded to help, either on-scene or otherwise, every parent throughout the world that had to witness this horrific incident, are all victims. Split-second decisions that have to be made in a time of crisis are always easy to ?Monday Morning Quarterback,? and not everyone is going to agree. It is truly sad that a political issue has to be made out of an incident such as this, either directly or indirectly. The last thing that Emily would have wanted was to have something like this turn into a political circus. I ask that people band together and stop blaming and second guessing. We should all be grateful that we have such outstanding neighboring agencies that we can call upon. It is understandable that things may have appeared to be in disarray at times. Face it, all the training in the world is never going to be like the real event. Everyone did the best they could, including all of our own wonderful officers, firefighters, EMS and especially the faculty of Platte Canyon High School. We should be thankful that we had people on scene like Jeffco Sheriff Ted Mink and our own Sheriff Wegener that could effectively assess and manage this difficult situation. Everyone there was thrust into conditions that nobody should ever have to endure, and I commend the decisions that were made. I, like everyone else, could only sit and listen to the horror unfold.

I would ask everyone to funnel your anger towards the person that caused this terrible event, and not at each other. Anger is a common reaction to any adversity, but we all need to pull together and support each other ? not throw barbs. I know Emily would like to see the community of Bailey back to a semblance of normalcy, no matter how long it takes, as would I.

With respect,
Don Anthony
