An overflow crowd packed into the West Hartford Town Hall Monday afternoon for a chance to voice their opinions to Congressman John B. Larson who held a community forum on Syria following President Barack Obama's announcement that he would seek congressional authorization for military action. Larson gave an update on the latest information from Congress and gave those in attendance an opportunity to express their views on the use of force in Syria. Amina Masri (in head dress) was born in Syria but now lives in Glastonbury with her family for about 10 years and is in support of President Obama and would like to see some retaliation taken on Syrian President Bashar Assad for his possible use of chemical weapons on his own people.
