Opinion: If You See Something, Say Something



I know you can’t see me, but I’m standing up and clapping as I write this column. I’m applauding Augusta University for its foresight on diversity. I was able to attend the naming of its largest ballroom to reflect the many accomplishments of Dr. Roscoe Williams.

  1. Before I moved out of South Augusta I had a break in at my house..called the police..they drove by and never stopped..I moved shortly afterwards..Augusta is the epitome of dysfunction and I feel sorry for the people that don’t have the means to get out..

  2. Dr. Roscoe Williams is indeed a great man….I would never try to break up a fight (would get accused of something) ….please ask AK Hasan why RC schools are performing so poorly and give us a column about it ….spot on your words: “From guns in schools to fist fights, something has got to give.” This ain’t Tombstone folk !!!

  3. Mr. Meyers continues to use the term “gun violence” rather than “violence”. Sadly, he knows, just as well as most of us, that guns are not the issue. He knows that the real issue is the culture of those who use violence of all kinds as a conflict resolution tool. There is no simple or easy fix for that. It will require that a cultural norm be dramatically changed and that is the real issue.
