We can help stop the killing
I attended a gathering of Christian leaders at Moody Bible Institute yesterday to discuss how we can help stem the tide of the recent epidemic of killing of school children in Chicago. I learned that one very practical thing we can do is to urge our constituencies to volunteer to be "walking school buses" to ensure "safe passage" of children to school and to let our churches and buildings near schools be designated as "safe havens" for children. It is a police sponsored program that volunteers can participate in. The police department trains the volunteers and issues special police vests. To volunteer call 312-747-9987.
