Re: "Gunfire sparks filmmaker’s activism," the Now, May 7.
I am writing this letter as a young concerned Surrey resident.
The issue that concerns me is all the recent gang violence and shootings that have happened all over Surrey and Delta.
As a teenager, it worries me that the next person killed will be a friend of mine. All of these shootings – and the fact that my friend just passed away not too long ago – have made me realize that the life all these kids are living (selling drugs and doing who knows what) doesn’t take you anywhere but jail or the morgue.
I think parents can help prevent these crimes by being more aware of who their kids are hanging out with – and by making sure there are consequences for their children’s behaviour.
