vert_children_ap_0.jpgToday’s talk is dedicated to the Tunstall children and their mother who were brutally killed and disposed of on or around September 15th. Today, right here in America, social issues particularly the rise of crime is deepening. The Tunstall children and their mother were victims of the rise of poverty, crime and hopelessness that many African Americans feel. I am truly sadden and sicken when I turn on the television and hear day after day the violence that is a never-ending story.

So many issues arise out of this one case alone that its hard to imagine the current government not paying closer attention to the “Struggle Against Violence” and the staggering social issues we have within our boarders. Future blogs will focus on these issues as this is only Part 1. What is your opinion on this issue? Our we fighting terrorism at the expense of funding our local communities with the necessary tools to combat poverty and crime? The annual FBI report on crime indicated that “Violent crime rose 2.3 percent last year, the first increase since 2001, and there were 1.39 million violent crimes which include rape, murder, robbery and aggravated assault reported in the United States in 2005, up from 1.36 million the previous year.”

With great sadness I wish the Tunstall family: R.I.P.
