I would like to get in touch with Clementine Barfield.

It is has been over 25 years since one of her son’s was killed and the other critically, yet, the violence has not stopped, it has escalated.

Maybe, just maybe she has some insight and some recommendations to stop, slow down the senseless killings of our youth.

Please, if possible give Ms. Barfield my email address and this comment.

Thank you!!!

LET’S SAVE MORE OF OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS!!!

I am a concerned resident in the city of Savannah, Ga. I would like to create an organization as such Save our Sons and Daughters because we had a violent incident over the weekend, involving 8 people who were shot at the local county fair and the youngest shooting victim was a six year old boy. It is now time to do something and advocate for our youth with no direction. I am so serious because I have a 15 year old, 16 year old and 19 year old who are old boys and at this time it is like they are endangered species and we need to focus back on the postive in our black young males and stop all this negativity. If at all possible can you send me some material on how to start this advocacy program.
