Are you willing to have a REAL dialog with me about this. I couldn't sleep.

Last night I had my son listen to this on the radio. It was VERY difficult to relive things like this.

Teaching "at risk" youth is extrememly draining.

Anyway---it took me back and last night I couldn't even sleep. I want to help so much.

Are you willing to have like a group discussion after listening to the "this american life" audio document and discuss your thoughts?

I know we all like to discuss things that are fun BUT children are dying and this was the first REAL life look that others got to hear.

Are you willing to discuss?

I am listening to it now. Its kind of sad the part where the boy is like we have beef with this place and they are super close as far as streets go and its crazy because they bring it in school its everywhere.

In order to fix the problem this WHOLE GLOBAL structure has to come down and change, starting with the evils of capitalism.  But who wants to give up their nice home, nice care and 6 figure salaries so that wealth can be evenly distributed to ALL? So that EVERYONE can TRULY be equal and have all the things they need to live a decent life?
