Youth Against Youth

In some neighborhoods The Violence against each other has reached epidemic proportions.

Bullets flying over a Diss, Robbery for a Coat, a Watch, some Jewelry, a Stare...

Gang activity overflowing in some neighborhoods...

Angry young men and young ladies, roam the streets, the subways, in search of victims who they can overpower, frighten and introduce them to the elements of hurt and fear.

Another funeral, another family weeps... Hanging sneakers, colorful murals, disbelieving lips and angry, vengeful eyes follow the processions to the grave.

Talks of payback and revenge keep the undertakers busy...

Stabbings, shootings, daily intake for many of our young people who have become callous, conditioned to the violence against each other.

Wrong Colors set them off, Wrong Clothes has led to Gun Fire...

Wrong Choices has led many of them to Prison or the Grave.

The gunmen are getting younger and younger. The victims are coming from every household, even those who claimed to have control over their children...

Stray bullets ring through out the night and day, Killing and Wounding Innocence...

Rap Wars, Street Wars, Keeps the Flames of Pain Burning continuously...

Too many funerals for Young People, too much violence against each other, not enough Positive Role Models for them to follow...

Our Young People are dying in record numbers because of their inability to maintain respect for each other.

Stop The Violence has to become more than a slogan if we are going to save this generation of young people...

We must find a way to remove the bitterness, the disappointments and the anger that has become the norm for so Many of Them...

Youth Against Youth The Violence is Overflowing...

13...Life is Gone...14...Life is Gone...15... Life is Gone... On and on the numbers increase while our heart continues to weep.

Young people please take heed or this generation will continue to bleed away its future...

13...Life is Gone... 14... Life is Gone...15... Life is Gone … On and on the numbers increase, while loved ones continue to weep, and the Death Angel continues to make its presence felt...

Youth Against Youth, Tired of the Headlines that Boggles the Mind...

Tired of watching eyes of grief, sobbing uncontrollably on these sometimes deadly streets...

Young people please take heed because the future will need many of you...

Stop the Violence before its too late and death seals your fate...
