Another tragic stabbing

May 19, 2009

Once again one of our young people in Lewisham has become a victim of violent crime. Last week 18 year-old Adam Pervaiz was stabbed to death in a stairwell in Deptford. Adam was one of my students when I was a teacher at Deptford Green School. He was quiet, polite and hard-working. He was a pleasure to teach and an example of all that is good in our young people. It’s such a tragedy and such a waste of a young life. The press reported a local resident saying that incidents like this are “normal around here.” We must never allow tragedies like this to become normal. It’s time to acknowledge the scale of this problem and pledge to do everything we can to rid our communities of this violence.
