this is sad

A boy was just killed a couple block from our house...there are killings on our street and around us almost every week...My boys are over there now but I am sure it was drug related...drugs are out of control in this area...

I try to keep our young people busy...if not...there is always "easy" money out there and the kids are so poor...seldom they see the end results until it is too late.

Pray for our neighbor hood...thanks.

Re: this is sad

Will do Sis Alvear.

It is so sad that people, especially young people are dying like this.
A mighty task lies before all of us.

Thank you for sharing your burden with us.

Re: this is sad

yes, it seems drugs have such a pull on youth especially in areas like where we live.

Sometimes Americans don´t understand why we try to make such a pull and do so much to try to keep the youth in church but they are at an age when so many hands are reaching to them...and drug money is fast money here.
