A Different World

Yesterday, WYPR had a great segment about the life of young Baltimore drug dealers. The people interviewed in the piece are all teenage drug dealers who have seen more hardships than I would wish on anyone in a whole lifetime. It’s hard to comprehend how these kids could have grown up just blocks away from where many of us lived and went to school.

    Sounds like these kids could really use some father figures. If this isn’t an endorsement for the big brothers program I don’t know what is.
