We are only in the 1st week of "regular" school and it has already been reported that a young student at Bowen was shot and killed. This story really hit home as the father was someone my husband knew personally when he lived here in Englewood.
As stated in the tribune,"An Englewood native, Jackson, 45, said he has done volunteer work with the anti violence group CeaseFire Illinois and was involved with at least one other group geared toward helping youths." He like myself was a advocate for PEACE and still could not avoid this devastating outcome.
It seems to me that more folks are really becoming fed up and finally ready to TAKE ACTION! It seems like every time I look around there is an event taking place with the "Stop the Violence" theme...I just don't understand with so many campaigns, marches, rallies, why things are not changing similar to our seasons??
I INVITE PEACE & THEREFORE THIS BECOMES MY REALITY!! I WILL CONTINUE TO CELEBRATE, WELCOME, CREATE, & BE THE PEACE I WANT IN MY REALITY!!
Case in point, in the midst of an area where people dare to drive through, there some senstational fun events happening in Englewood too! The Black Ensemble Theater is here at KKC from September 10th-26th....This is a perfect for the family, I am definitely trying to check this out!
