    Five-year-old Melanise “Neenee” Malone was killed last week – killed while trying, with the rest of her family – to flee the gang violence that has turned her Opa-locka neighborhood into a Florida Fallujah.

    Neenee’s death, like the deaths of most children in crime-ridden communities, is a senseless one, an act committed by people who have, tragically, decided that their power lies in how well they can wield a gun. But when I see how this situation unfolded, I also see how the demons of apathy are killing many of our communities

    What are we doing to ourselves? It's one thing to be brought down by no will and choice of your own, but it is entirley different when you contribute to the downward spiral of your own people.Does it really have to take the murder of a helpless 3 yr old for people to open their eyes? How many people have died already? How many will continue to die? When will some of us finally take responsibility? What are we to do?

    We thought we could make it with just the talented tenth. But see we have to pay for those we let fall through the cracks.
