Rebuilding What Has Been Torn Down

Today I read the story of Linda Dennis in the Sun paper. It is so upsetting to see the rise in gangs and the communities they hold hostage and the lives they destroy. Even more upsetting is our government not doing what is necessary to provide for safe streets where children can play on the front porches.
Every day here at Helping Up Mission we work with men who were trapped in the mire of the drug culture. We know what has been torn down can be rebuilt if the destructive behavior is stopped. But every attempt to rebuild will be ruined if the destructive behavior is not arrested.
Maybe one day the City, State and Feds will all get together and carry out government’s primary responsibility and give our communities the safety they need.
When that happens watch the communities bounce back and the city rebuild itself!
