Gun Violence

Yeah.   It's here.   Everyday.   Everywhere.

Most of the media is about Chicago.   Then again......

MyStateline has a report by Owen Stiffler  titled: "Innocent Bystander In Critical Condition After Gunfight on Street - One person critically hurt in car-to-car shooting." which you can read here.   And see a video.
[  It's Everywhere.  ]

Couple of programs seem to help.   But get little or no funding these days.

Ceasefire is here.    Research the stats.   #Unfit4Governor killed these funds in IL.

The Washington Post has an article by  Lauren Dockett titled: "This innovative program uses brain science to teach Chicago teens how to stop violence" which you can read here.   CHILL is here.   And, there are others.   De-escalation.

The Chicago Tribune has an article by Manya Brachear Pashman titled: "'Never lose hope,' pope writes to Chicago families stricken by violence - Cardinal Blase Cupich, archbishop of Chicago, speaks about the Archdiocese of Chicago’s anti-violence initiatives April 4, 2017, at Peace Corner Youth Center in Chicago's South Austin neighborhood." which you can read here.

One at a time: One person; one donation to help.   And, work towards solutions.
