Do you really understand what is going on in Baltimore?
For eight years I worked in Baltimore with grandparents who were raising their grandchildren because their children had struggles with the pervasive drug problem in the City. These grandparents lived in some of the most blighted neighborhoods of Baltimore. Boarded up row homes and trash gave a surface reality to how dangerous these neighborhoods had become. I became familiar with the hand signals used by the drug dealers who brazenly signaled passing motorists as you traveled on Martin Luther King Blvd., North Ave. and Greenmount Ave.
The past weekend I watched the PBS Frontline show that showed the reality of the struggles of families living in many of our inner cities. The show is called "The Interrupters" and is almost two hours but well worth your time to click on the link and watch this show.
