She wrote: “It’s time for us all to stop talking and start doing. We need community centers and strong national mentorship programs supported by the church, government, corporate volunteers and caring neighbors to focus on at-risk children. Many of these children seek love and attention in all the wrong places such as gangs and inappropriate companionship, resulting in them getting involved with crime or sexual relations at a young age. If we all do our part we can change this vicious cycle.”
