We rally around calls for gun control and yet, for decades, Baltimore has had some of the toughest gun control laws in the nation. Who do you trust in an environment ruled by fear, complacency and greed?
With word of each new passing we think “This is the one, this is the victim we can’t turn away from.” And yet we do. We fail to take back our communities. How many more children, how many more neighbors will we lose for allowing this corrupt environment to continue?
My father taught me that there was one thing worse than death and that was the fear of death. In a city where turning away has become the acceptable norm, we have permitted that fear to overcome a portion of our humanity.
Honor Shawnice Singletary’s memory by taking control of your community and, by doing so, fight the good fight to honor the memory of all innocents.
