Gang violence

June 02 2008

I just saw on news2 a video of some residents in north Nashville that had a fake funeral and it seems that there was an ex-gang member that was there trying to talk with the youth about not getting involved in gangs. I wish other ex gang member’s would work with the youth to tell them not to join a gang. This might be the right way to help the gang population. We adults need to work with the youth and try to teach them the right way of life! If someone wants to join a gang why not tell them to join the boys and girls club or some other group that will enable them to do the right things in life. Just last night we had someone at work wearing a bandana and it wasnt a gang related bandana but I still had them remove it for if I left one wear it then all can wear it. I try to do my part and not let those show support for gangs. I also have several of my regualr customers that have move across to Tn to escape the gang life and now they don’t regret the move for they are living much better lives and working hard. I have heard them some nights talk to other youths about gangs and they tell them it’s not the life they want to live. This is a start but we need everyone to help in this situation. If our churchs will stand up and help I see this a good thing as well as civic groups need to sponser cetain events for the youth. Summer time is the time most youth have nothing to do and they get sucked up into the gangs! It all begins with you!!
