Making year-end reading lists seems popular so I decided to make a few myself. Today's list includes stories about Chicago street violence, which I've posted on my blog in the past year. Below are the date, and the headline. Click the link to read the story.

I've been posting stories like these since I started my this blog in 2005. Similar stories with maps are shown on the MappingForJustice blog.

All of my articles have a common purpose. More people need to be actively, and strategically, involved in providing the operating resources, talent, technology and ideas needed to build and sustain mentor-rich non school learning centers in areas with high incidents of violence, and high concentrations of poverty and poorly performing schools.

If this is your passion, and your commitment, let's connect in 2014.
