More young black lives have been snuffed out in the midst of flowers and spring. Why?
Why is another makeshift memorial of balloons, stuffed animals, and hand-printed signs dotting the streets of my city, St. Louis? Where is the hope and future for young people? The latest casualty is an African-American couple in their 20s, shot to death in a drive-by shooting March 30. The woman’s three children rode with them, but survived.
The answers to those questions might be beyond the racial divide and lie in helping all of us search for hope and a future for our children.
