Hope for America?
Annotation:"In Country, In City." For decades, the writer Alex Kotlowitz has been writing about the inner cities and the toll of violence on young people. So when he heard about a program at Drexel University where guys from the inner city get counseling for PTSD, he wondered if the effect of urban violence was comparable to the trauma that a person experiences from war
Annotation:This documentary tells the story of the "Violence Interrupters" who work to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they once employed.

The radio show "This American Life" is one of my favorite radio programs and they produce some great segments that always get me thinking/crying. Lately, they have had some moving pieces on violence, poverty, and life on the streets. These are problems in our neighborhoods, communities, and nation. Hoping everyone takes some time to listen and read; we need to find a solution.
