Tribal conflicts exist around the world. Racial conflicts exist all over the country. When African Americans are killed within walking distance from our home one must ask what can be done to help in a small way:

Mentor a child who has been dealt a bad hand?

Give money to a cause that shows compassion or might reduce conflict?

Volunteer time at the Shaw Center, a relatively unknown shelter for children on Mary Street in Charleston?

The Emanuel Church disaster demands our attention and action.
