One editorial subject we revisit from time to time is domestic violence -- usually in the aftermath of a local woman's violent death.
As an editorial board we discuss the issue -- usually without much insight -- of how to change the situation or help its victims.
It's an important topic, yet one that eludes this group on what exactly we can do to prevent violence against women.
So we are enthusiastic to learn that Mark Wynn will be here Monday to speak to our community. The presentation will be from 6:30-8 p.m. at Columbia Basin College's Gjerde Center. It's free and open to the public.
Lt. Wynn's bio sheet just plain wouldn't fit in this space (but it does include appearances on Oprah, Dateline and several national news programs).
His specialty is providing domestic violence prevention training to police officers, legal professionals and victim advocates.
Topics he will cover include what the community can do about domestic violence, why victims stay and why offenders batter.
Statistics tell us that you know someone who is a victim of domestic violence. You may be a victim yourself.
You probably know a batterer as well.
Most likely you don't know what to do about the situation.
The Tri-City Herald editorial board doesn't know what to do about it, either.
Mark Wynn does.
It will be worth listening to him.
