Skaters Against Violence

They had an article in the paper about a group of inline skaters who do skate marathons against street violence and to call attention to victim's rights.

At first, I assumed that the skaters were skating against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. I knew these skaters were liberals and most liberals just can't care about the victims of crime like they do about the perpetrators of crime. They just don't have it in them. The vast majority of them would put on the old roller skates for Tookie, but not for Tookie's victims.

So I was happily surprised to hear about this group of concerned citizens who realize that more people are dying here on the streets of America than are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

Then again, there are only 12 of these enlightened people.

Hi,

I was doing an e-mail about our Skate Against Violence and saw your comment. Thank you. We are all staying at a hostel in Venice Beach for the weekend.

You can find info about our group at http://www.cora.org There you will find the reasons we skate against violence and how we try to promote skating as a fun, healthy activity for everyone.

Keep Rollin',

"This is where the real war is, a war worth fighting. I've never been to Afghanistan and I'm not going to Iraq. But they don't seem to be places that matter, not to me. Maybe, just possibly, we can win a war in Iraq, but sure as hell we're losing the war at our doorstep. You go up to the top of the block and look around. From that roof, you can see power and Parliament, you'll see where all the big people make their money... But if you look down by your feet, you'll see where the war is."

Iraq and mortgages and declining value of money get the headlines. But the drifts of corpses are still piling up right here at home.

Thanks to both of you. You both know exactly what you are talking about. I just read today that over 100,000 people have been murdered in America in the last 6 years. It's sickening.
