How was your weekend?

300 Men marched against violence In Baltimore. I guess since was no looting or violence associated with the march, it did not make national news.

But apparently the criminals weren't listening. "At least 21 people were shot since Friday," reports the Sun. To put it in perspective, as Justin Fenton did, that rate of violence would be 92 shot in Chicago. Or 279 people shot in New York City. Now that would be a story.

The level of carnage, the lost and broken lives, is almost impossible to comprehend if you're not there. That doesn't mean we shouldn't try.
