Walk to help stop gun violence

Over the weekend, I attended a day-long community forum (there will be more on that later) that was in part focused on what has to change in Philadelphia in order for it to become the great city we know it can be. One of the things that came up in several of the groups in which I participated was the need to do something about the current rate of murders.

If this is also something that concerns you (and if it doesn’t have you worried, you might want to check your pulse) there’s a walk and rally, led by survivors of gun violence, that you can attend tomorrow (October 16th) from 12 noon until 1:30 pm. The walk begins at noon at Magee Rehab Hospital (16th and Race) and goes to the State Building at Broad and Spring Garden Streets.

    I am the widow of Charles Baldwin who was murdered April 6, 2007. While getting dressed in his bedroom a bullet came through his window and took away one of the greatest men ever born. Just 10 months earlier we were hit with the sudden murder of my brother (the Septa police officer) who was sitting in his car work security and was riddle with bullets. Where does the violence stop, when does the violence stop? I’m trying everyday to get past the pain that city has caused myself and my family.
