    Lamon Reccord is a 16-year-old who is ready for change. The young activist realizes that in order to make things better, you can’t be passive. It requires standing up, being vocal and being vigilant. Often it all starts with dealing with elected officials and their relationships with the people they serve.

    We can only hope and pray that today's young black people do mature--as we did too-also do decide to become grassroots activists when they grow up!
