NOT Our Community

Three teenagers were charged Monday with beating a 16-year-old to death as he walked home from school, the latest killing in a city school system rife with violence. .

The "people" doing the beating are NOT our community. The young man who was an honor student who came to the aid of a friend in need...that's our community. Unfortunately these kids (Honor Students) only get mentioned when something bad happens to them. We shouldn't honor the best of us with candles and teddy bears after a tragedy. We must honor, protect and nurture them daily.
