In May, a 5-year-old girl, Elizabeth “Lizzie” Shelley, went missing in Logan. Many in the community got involved in the search. Most in the community sent their thoughts and prayers for the safe return of the girl. Then Lizzie’s body was found and an uncle is charged in her death. This was and is a community experience. A community trauma. Our communities suffer trauma on a frequent basis, recent mass shootings are examples. How does a community heal from such trauma? How does a community become resilient?
