Unfortunately, the gun violence in Chicago has reached an all-time high. Each day we lose young innocent teens on the streets, usually just at the wrong place at the wrong time. The above video is a sign of the times across the country. And with the recent shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, this message stretches beyond our city streets.
It’s sad that the new generation of youth cannot enjoy the simple times of yesterday. Schools used to be the only safe-haven for those living in gang infested areas. But to hear of such devastation, even in a tight-knit small community such as Newtown, crushes that hope. Where can they feel safe?
The guns need to come out of the hands of irresponsible civilians. There is absolutely no need for them to have semi-automatic assault rifles. If guns continue to flow freely in the streets, how do we expect the senseless violence to end?
If you have the passion to hear what our youth is feeling…listen to the words in this heart-felt video. It is called “Too Many Teddy Bears“ which is a sad reality. What a powerful message…the lyrics will chill your bones.
When a deadly shooting can happen at an elementary school in Newtown…it can happen anywhere.
