Over the past few weeks my town has been in the news for shooting. All of these shooting have been occurring very close to my home. I do have children and my children love to play outside. Fortunately we have a huge back yard and we live in the middle of the block so basically these beautiful skie don't have to go unenjoyed.
Well a few days ago I was standing at my kitchen sink and I could see my boys outside playing in the back yard of a church a few doors down from my house. The church is on the corner, so I began to think what is someone starts shooting? And bullets go flying? One of my children could be hurt, so I called the boys inside.
I really never thought that I would be afraid for my kids in my neighborhood. In an effort to try to stop the violence on May 28th there will be a festival in my town, Plainfield, NJ. I have got to be honest, I dont know how this festival is supposed to get this done but I am willing to do whatever I can to help out.
Above are some lovely blue skies from in front of my house.
