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.
