Who Cares?

PUBLISHED ON September 24, 2020

We were living in housing projects, such as on Cleveland’s west side, relatively close to where 12 year-old Tamir Rice was killed, several years back. We live in different types of neighborhoods, now where tragedies, like this, never happen – to any children – not at the hands of professionals. It would NOT be tolerated…
But, because of my upbringing, I am never far from west-side project, Cleveland-type neighborhoods, where tragedies, like Tamir, Breonna (and…) are allowed to be tolerated by the broader society.
Can you think of any tragedies, like this that happen in your neighborhood? At the hands of “professionals”?
Do you care?
