I had a really interesting chat with an elder on an East London estate this evening about #SeriousYouthViolence
(hat tip to @akalamusic for pointing out the power of the words we hang over the heads of our young people).
He was looking very dapper, and I gave him a compliment on his suit, and he sighed and said the kid he took to court this morning got 7 years. And the one this afternoon from his block got 2 years. That’s the difference between guns and knives he said.
I asked him if there was anything we could do to support him. He looked tired. “I’m 60 years old. Why am I the one listening to them? Why is no one coming down here asking what is going on? These kids are all gas. They wanna play the big man because they have no voice.”
