Mr. King spoke to the community and elected officials about the importance of community activism and building better community relations with our youth who so desperately need hope, love and opportunity in their homes and as well in their neighborhoods. Talk is cheap nowadays, we have to act and act fast! Lives are being lost daily and we can no longer sit back and wait for our elected officials do something for us, it starts at home and the parents need to take back their households and make a change in the way we pay attention to our children. We can not let another life be lost to the ills of the street, so we have to hold our neighbors and people in the community accountable for what goes on because the community is on the front line of this war, not the politicians. On the political level, our elected must make opportunities available for the youth in these trouble areas and keep them accessible for all. Youth is one aspect for the politicians to address, along with health care, housing, senior citizens, and much more. We should do our part, and help in any way we can.
