What a very sad story, “‘Smile 4 Smiley Movement’ Opens Dialogue About Domestic Violence.” I salute the mother QueenAfi for her strength and using a tragedy to help others. I couldn’t imagine losing someone so close to me to a senseless and savage killing. Fortunately, I’ve never encountered an abusive man or been in an abusive relationship, so on many levels, I just don’t understand. I still send my prayers to those who are and have been affected.

Keep Bridging the Gap

I enjoyed this month’s edition of The Bridge. It’s so bright, fresh and young. You get a lot of news and then, boom, a pleasant surprise. We need stuff like The Bridge to capture the young people’s attention.
