My heart cries out to the families of theses young children who was not given the opportunity to experience life. Some of them right out of high school and some never even got the chance to get a diploma. This neighborhood is no longer a community it's a battle field.
I hear gunfire at least three times a week or more. Since this senseless murder on thanksgiving day I have heard the helicopters and shots two times. Kids there is so much for you to live for. Your interested in firearms join the army. I'm tired already. Parents check your kids room if your suspicious. Your the parents, don't allow them to keep weapons in your homes. Please stop life is so much more than what your doing in the Rockaways.
