Moved by photo showing Edward Fleury

Living in adjacent Shutesbury, I have followed the numerous gun-centric stories about Edward Fleury, former police chief of Pelham.

I am no gun advocate, and viewed these sometimes tragic accounts as emblematic of the nation’s obsession with firearms designed principally for the killing of other human beings.

But your front-page photo of Mr. Fleury and his family (Oct. 6) moved me in an altogether different way. I saw the unconditional love of a family for their son and brother in his time of greatest need. No bond is stronger.

Photographer Jerrey Roberts should be commended for showing us so much in one image.
