Hartford is experiencing another wave of senseless violence. On a recent weekend, fourteen people were shot or stabbed and two died. This is an impromptu memorial on Ashley Street, remembering a young father of two who was the victim of multiple gunshots. The victim was a high school graduate, employed as a landscaper, and was described as outgoing, frendly and not a troublemaker.
Drugs. Guns. Poverty. Hopelessness. It is a tough cycle to break.
