There is something wrong with our cities.
Americans have grown accustomed to the fact that—no matter which city we might be in—substantial numbers of residents live their lives amidst poverty, drugs, and violence. Innocent children in our inner cities are born into enormous disadvantages, lacking quality education, health care, and limited attention from adults. While community leaders, local agencies, and neighborhood churches strive to meet these challenges, they often lack the staff and resources to address critical needs, leaving many marginalized families to fend for themselves.
Los Angeles is no exception. Despite genuine efforts of civic leaders and organizations, it retains the dubious reputation as both the homeless and gang capital of America.
