From the Crown
To Avacal,We are devastated by what has happened in the Kingdom.
No matter what happens next let’s make sure we respect the families involved and allow them their space. Please keep in mind that our responses can have as much or more impact on people as the traumatic event itself.
We hope that the Kingdom will provide a stable source of support for all. Listening is often the best way to help support a survivor. Be patient with one another – everyone processes differently.
We are not experts – far from it. If anyone needs counseling or assistance, please seek out professional help.
Because this affects us all we are all part of the solution.
