Below is a video testimony given at "The Revival: Time for a Moral Revolution of Values" Boston service on August 1, 2016, about the need for reducing violence in our neighborhoods. A summary transcript of the video follows:
Clergy are not exempt from violence in our communities. We must use our voices to attempt to end violence on our streets and in our neighborhoods. My 13 year old son was murdered in 2007 a few steps from our house. No one should have to experience this loss. No one should have their lives taken away in such a fashion.
