Fulfilling a Promise

Our Village Coalition is the result of a promise that I made to my grandson Ka'Vyea 'Buddha' Tyson-Curry as he lay in a hospital bed at Children's Mercy Hospital. In an effort to ease the obvious pain his little mind and body is certainly going through I promised him that his suffering, and his father's death wouldn't be in vain. 

Ending the violence that affects us all is not something a single person can do. It will take a Village to achieve this goal, but it is achievable if we truly want to see an end to it. In order to make this promise reality for my grandson, and all of our sons and daughters your help and support is greatly needed (strike that), it is a must, because you nor I can solve any of our problems alone, whatever they may be.
