As investigators look into why the student brought a gun to school, coincidentally community members talked gun violence Thursday night. For about one and half to two years Wilmington city leaders, UNCW staff and other community organizations have been working on a plan to reduce youth gun violence. Thursday night, city officials presented a report pointing out four initiatives to be the focus of keeping kids safe. These four points include prevention and intervention, law enforcement, education and jobs.
For the first time .. well, perhaps FOREVER! Someone has identified a Problem, presented a SOLUTION, and seem to be actively working toward a RESOLUTION!
I don't know if they can make it work, but they have a plan and they're not just whining about a problem.
What a refreshing change!
