    Children need our help. Youth violence is a plague in its beginning stages. Our local government, state governments, and national government must develop comprehensive programs to stop youth violence. We can stop our children from becoming a part of gang activity, we can stop the killings that occurred at Virginia Tech, and we can stop the Columbine shootings from happening again. There are programs and grants available to teach our youth right from wrong, to make them feel valued, to make them feel a part of our community. Join us in a comprehensive discussion on Curbing Youth Violence; Stopping Violence before it happens. Blog us at FreeSpeechAmerica.us and listen and call in our live radio show broadcasting Thursday’s at 7 at WGOW.com – We want to hear from you!!!
