Last night, developers presented plans at the monthly SOSNA zoning meeting for a new building at 2401 Washington Ave., a property that today is a vacant lot. You can imagine, this kind of development would tickle us pink.

I would like to say thank you to each and every person that attended our "Mother's of No Tomorrow" documentary and violence forum tonight. The one thing that I enjoyed the most was that the heart of the community came out 400 strong to hear a positive message , but to also voice their opinions about the things that they don't like in the community. Most forums that I attend you hear people preach to the choir , but tonight we had a chance to not only engage the community , but to also offer resources to help our community. It doesn't stop here.We were able to collect all of the contact information for everyone that attended and we will be reaching out to them to engage them on other issues. Last but not least , I would like to thank the parents of the murder victims for coming out. I thank you guys and I love you guys as well. #weareone
