Frankford Memories from 2001

The video below was produced back in 2001 when there was a great deal of very positive activity on Frankford Avenue.   The five people who were interviewed for their recollections of Frankford give first person accounts of things we can now only read about.  It is only about 20 minutes long but well worth seeing again. Thanks to Joe Menkevich for digging up the old VHS tape.

In the wake of the tragic school shooting in Florida last week, here is an excellent link on talking to our children about violence. https://www.nasponline.org/resources-and-publications/resources/school-safety-and-crisis/talking-to-children-about-violence-tips-for-parents-and-teachers?mc_cid=8d2de1f1e0&mc_eid=93ced7bb74

    Talking to Children About Violence: Tips for Parents and Teachers
    High profile acts of violence, particularly in schools, can confuse and frighten children who may feel in danger or worry that their friends or loved-ones are at risk. They will look to adults for information and guidance on how to react.

Veterans of the Month for February 2018

100 years ago, the United States was at war.  It became official on April 6th of 1917 and in June of that year, young men all over America and Frankford, began registering for the draft.  The war in Europe had been going on since 1914 and was at a stalemate.  It would take the entry of the United States to bring it to an end.

Price of Children’s Lives

NEAR AND FAR

    Price of Children's Lives
    We must ride the tide for Humanity, dig deep for sanity. No longer can we not face reality, when the nature of life is not a fantasy. When children are dying in buildings that they call sanctuaries. Politicians should hear the call of parent's near and far.

Unfortunately, Frankford Branch is closed. However, did you know that you can take the Market-Frankford Line on the corner from here and get off at Allegheny Station, walk two blocks, and you will be at McPherson Square Branch? Or, you can get off at York-Dauphin Station and walk one block to Kensington Branch?

Op-Ed from State Representative Jason Dawkins

At age 13, I lost my older brother to homicide. A few years later, my younger brother made a bad decision that resulted in a murder conviction. My story is not unique. I have been a witness to both sides of the criminal justice equation, and I have experienced tragedy that is far too familiar to families and individuals across our nation. But this tragedy has not defined me. I believe in redemption. Our Constitution was founded on such a principle, and I believe that the people of Pennsylvania deserve that same chance at redemption – they deserve our support and they deserve our advocacy.
