Such a shame and a waste of life. This week a 5 yr old girl and an 8 yr old boy were shot. They were innocent victims of a drive-by off Scott Street and Wheeler Avenue in Houston. Sure, they caught the 18 yr old gang member who had an illegal firearm.
But, it seems that no one really cares besides family and friends. No outcry, no vigils of any account. No calls to crack down on gangs or violence in the poorer neighborhoods or more police patrols.
I am saddened that it didn’t seem like such a big deal.
A famous book character put it best. “Everybody counts or nobody counts”.
