so sad. BDE, you are always so good about sharing these local (to you) stories. My dad, who lives on the far west side of Detroit says gangs are killing each other's kids now, and having their kids go against each other. And then I read this a day later. Kids used to be off limits for gangs. So goes the devaluing of human life. =("I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world.

It saddens me to report about so many tragic deaths in Detroit - many involving children and/or teens. Yes, it's sad, but it's the new norm. Kids killing kids. Who knew that this is what the world would become?
