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.
