Peace/OSC Plus Program

My name is Chyrisse Dunnorm and I'm the Director of the Peace Community and Mentor to 10 incredible youth. I meet all of them 8 weeks ago and connected to them in a special way. They are known to me as The Peace Dream Team and their name are Avery, Justin, Shaquille, Jaquille, Tony, Darrius Jerome Quest, Gaylon and the Princess Shaquanda. I couldn't have been paired with an awesome group of youth than The Peace dream Team. I've had the pleasure of watching 10 youth from different parts of Englewood unite as a family. They have shown me what is to endure obstacles and overcome differcult situations. I've learn how to Love more because of them and respect the difference between of allof their different personalities. I've drawn strength from the Dream Teams resilence. They didn't let nothing get in the way of their being on time every day nor did they let anything getting get in the way of them as a team completeing their Financial Literacy or their Social Emotional Learning workshops. When it was time to let their  voices be heard about overcoming tramua in the neighborhoods the Dream Team expressed their concerns very well. Ive enjoyed  our outing downtown and I've also enjoyed hearing them voice their opinions in the circle.  They are  truly Smart, Loving and Kind people when you get to know them as I have  had the Joy and Pleasure. They know the importance of being Independant, being Responsible, Prompt, Balancing a job, school, and family. They understand that their journey in life is based on their choice and their decision. They understand that their education is the key to unlocking career opprtunities that would help  them provide for their families. They have learned how to have Intergrity and Respect for themselves and others. and they also learned what to do when they step out of Intergrity with their families and peers. I'm  very proud of what they have accomplished as a Team and Indidvidually. I'm very proud of the Leadership role that Avery has diplayed during the program, Justin(Strength), Quest( Meekness),Shaquille(Peacefulness), Jaquille(Gentleness), Darrius(Joy), Gaylon(Determination), Jerome( Kindness), Tony( Goodness) and the Princess( Faithfulness and Love for her team). Truly, I have been Blessed with Awesome Dream and I'm Grateful for the time that, we have spent together. I Love this Team Dearly and I'm Excited about their continuing Going For Greater as they are in the stage of Transitioning back to school and finding part-time jobs. The Dream Team have already finished their cover letters and resume and have  been on the internet filling out job applications. Avery and Gaylon are currently getting ready for College in and out of State, Jaquille, Darrius, Shaquille and Quest are getting ready for their Senior year, Jerome is getting vready for his Junior year, Shaquanda Sophomore year, Tony have decided to get his GED and me( Chyrisse) I'm still pursuing my Bachelors degree at the University of Phoenix.  I Thank God that they relationships that were formed in the OSC Plus summer program are long term. Peace and Blessing be unto you and your family from Ms. Chyrisse and The Peace Dream Team.

Lee Goodman: Stop Conceal Carry Coalition

President Obama's comments about yesterday's shooting at an Oregon high school demonstrate the urgency of our work to reduce gun violence. Here are excerpts from his remarks:

“Our levels of gun violence are off the charts. "Right now, it's not even possible to get even the mildest restrictions through Congress, and we should be ashamed of that." “If public opinion does not demand change in Congress, it will not change.” “My biggest frustration so far is the fact that this...

President Obama's comments about yesterday's shooting at an Oregon high school demonstrate the urgency of our work to reduce gun violence. Here are excerpts from his remarks:

“Our levels of gun violence are off the charts. "Right now, it's not even possible to get even the mildest restrictions through Congress, and we should be ashamed of that." “If public opinion does not demand change in Congress, it will not change.” “My biggest frustration so far is the fact that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do just unbelievable damage. We’re the only developed country on the Earth where this happens. And it happens now once a week, and it’s a one-day story. “A lot of people will say this is a mental health problem – it’s not a gun problem. The United States does not have a monopoly on crazy people. It’s not the only country that has psychosis, and yet, we kill each other in these mass shootings at rates that are exponentially higher than any place else. Well, what’s the difference? The difference is that these guys can stack up a bunch of ammunition in their houses, and that’s sort of par for the course.”
.
What can be done?
It's time for us to be honest about the situation. It's time for America to admit that the Second Amendment is at the core of the problem we are having with guns. The fundamental concept that every American has a right to have guns must be challenged – and changed.
More than 600 people have signed our petition to repeal the Second Amendment. If you have not yet signed, please go to www.PeacefulCommunities.org now and add your name to the growing list of people who are ready to move our country in the direction it needs to go. Once you sign, forward this message to a friend.
Let's show President Obama and Congress that the American people are willing to do what needs to be done to make our country safer for everyone.

  • Drew 60626 Democrat

    Hi. I'm very sorry about the violence in your neighborhood, but please don't just blame it on guns alone. We all know that gang culture, poverty, lack of education and lack of jobs are the main factors. Also, Lee Goodman is a very well known extreme radical who simply despises law-abiding gun owners like me. I own a legally bought handgun that I keep in case some criminal was to break inside my home in the middle of the night. I choose to protect my family. What's wrong with that?
