Witnessing a Murder

Growing up in urban St. Louis is a challenge. From the crime-riddled neighborhoods, drugs and one of highest murder rates in America, chances are slim that a child will make it out without falling prey to the vicious cycle. In my case, I got out, but not without seeing the brother of one of my friends gunned down in cold blood.

More Than Just Gamesmanship

As the federal government shutdown has now reached the one-month mark we are coming to see all too clearly that real lives are being affected by each new day of the stalemate. Paychecks are not being issued to more than 800,000 federal employees, leaving many to wonder how they are going to pay their mortgages, rent, car payments and utility bills. And the ripple effect is being felt across many related industries. Even though furloughed employees will eventually receive their back pay once the government reopens, it’s not much consolation in the here and now. Today our student journalists are blogging on their thoughts about the historic shutdown, the longest in U.S. history.

Sports, a Second Parent

Kids from poverty stricken neighborhoods and broken homes can learn the qualities of good character through athletics. Kids learn how to work in teams, to be hardworking, to set goals and even understand responsibility for the first time.

Growing up in inner-city areas can have detrimental effects on adolescents, but those who choose to pursue athletics may find themselves able to overcome their demographic struggles and develop strong character traits along the way.
