The scene of this tragedy is where my friends and I grew up many years ago. It is not a "Ghetto" by any stretch of imagination, yet "Ghetto-minded" fools think it is a badge of honor to wreak havoc in our communities. Thanks for trying to make a difference, my brother. Godspeed to you and your family for your journey is complete.
