Toronto Gun Life, 2010

A headline is worth a thousand words. But, how many lives must we lose until we address the senseless violence that plagues our community? Year after year its the same story: a young black male in the wrong place @ the wrong time. Mothers crying into news reporters microphones. Friends claiming "he was a good kid". Neighbours shocked that it happened in their "quiet" neighbourhood.

Who's responsible? Who should take the blame? You, me, him or her? Well, if you ask me: We all should. From the parents who are ignorant to their childs shady behaviour to the guys who fear the local thugs to the girls who shower them with affection. We are all responsible. In 2011, instead of blaming the media, movies, television or music, ask yourself a simple question: what have I done to prevent gun violence?
