Dear Mideast Region Member,

It is with great sorrow that I send this message concerning a recent event in our own Mideast Region. As you have heard in the news cycle, two more senseless mass shootings have occurred in this country. One of those events happened at the very center of our own region in Southwest Ohio, just north of Dayton, Ohio. This message is one of heartache that our country continues to suffer through this violence, and anguish that this latest event occurred so close to all of us, most especially our good colleagues in that area.

This message is to send all of SW Ohio, most especially the Dayton area, the warmest wishes of care and concern, and also to El Paso, Texas.

Most sincerely,
Linda Stricker, MSN, RN, CWOCN
President Mideast Region of the WOCN® Society
