To the editor:

I was appalled at the treatment the Alakhras family received while house hunting [July 16 letter to the editor]. There is no excuse for the offensive behavior they experienced, and it is disgraceful that others apparently encouraged the boy’s actions.

As an Alexandria native, I know I am not alone in condemning this incident, nor am I alone in wanting to assure the Alakhras family that they are most welcome in the community.
