NANCY E. FETTER, LimaThe death of Tarika Wilson is a tragic loss ó especially for her children and her family. Iím certain she was a kind, caring and giving person, although I did not know her. I do not bash black people. I believe they all have the same opportunity to make a good, honest, decent living as anyone else on this Earth.So, with this in mind, I have to say that I believe we all put ourselves in the predicaments we decide to. Tarika Wilson put herself and her children in the environment that she chose to. Iím sure she loved her children and cared for them to the best of her ability, but do you think God believed she had her children in the best environment she could have allowed?Drugs allegedly were found in the home in which she lived. Did she know this? Most likely she did. She was involved with a man who is known to have prior involvement with drugs. Once again, did she know this? Probably so.This is not an environment I would want my children to be subjected to. Children are not stupid. They know what goes on in their surroundings.We, as adults, know what is right and what is wrong. With drugs come the dangers one is likely to be exposed to: guns, murder, etc. So let us not blame the other race for the wrongs that occur in our lives and in our city by our own actions and our own knowledge of what is right and what is wrong.God loves each of us and we should live our lives as he deems: to please him and ensure our safety and survival on this Earth. God be with Tarika Wilsonís family at this time of loss.
