Residents and law enforcement must continue work to break the cycle of violence in city neighborhoods
The killers don’t care. They don’t care about our tears; they don’t care about our pleas and exhortations. They don’t care about marches, protests, prayers, peace vigils or editorials.
They don’t care about you.
But we, as a community, as mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, friends and colleagues, we MUST CARE! To do less, to become numb to the senseless violence, to throw our hands up and say “what’s the use,” makes us almost as crass and unfeeling as the misguided, heartless individuals who continue to prey on our community.
Myself, and so many others, have written about these senseless tragedies so many times.
