The headline reads “5 TEEN FOOTBALL PLAYERS SHOT AFTER AMBUSH NEAR ROXBOROUGH HIGH SCHOOL IN PHILADELPHIA; 1 DEAD”

Same headline different victims, our sons and daughters are in trouble Philadelphia! We tell our children to go school, get involved, join activities and yet they still aren’t safe.

Yesterday’s shooting at Roxborough High School is yet another example of the crisis we are facing with the continued gun violence. At what point do we say ENOUGH?

The killers are not strangers they are our sons, daughters, friends, and neighbors.

We have to speak up, we have to act and the time is NOW!

Philadelphia what is our call to action? How do we save our children?

Organizations and community members IT’S TIME For SOLUTIONS!!!
