It seems like whenever we turn on the news or go on the various social media sites, all we see is another violent attack against a school, a young child, or anyone. Most of these attacks involve guns. Whether you’re on the side promoting guns or whether you’re on the side refuting guns all together, we all should come together as a community and rally towards this great cause! That’s exactly what Zulu Motorcycle Club, Mayor Frank Jackson and the Cleveland Police did. This past Saturday afternoon, Community Leaders met with the motorcyclists to discuss this issue that with all this vast involvement, will get better with time and effort.
This meeting took place at City Hall Saturday October 19th. The organizers of this rally said that motorcyclists are well-respected in the community. They can play a key role by being the eyes and ears for the police, if they see any sort of crime happening. Project Coordinator Sharyna Cloud quotes, “As they’re riding by, they’re looking at the bus stops, they can look on street corners just to see what’s going on, and if they see something, say something.” It appears so easy, yet not enough people take a stand against gun violence, or violence in general. Although getting involved might seem like over stepping to some, if it saves lives, it’s a risk worth taking.
Approximately 500 people attended this event despite the depressing weather we had on that Sweetest Day. The Rally also served as a jumping off point for the Toys for Tots Collection Drive for Christmas. Tis’ the Season! Stay tuned to TV20 for more coverage of this great cause, along with any other news happening in our area.
