I have read with great interest your feature articles on the violence in Kansas City’s 64130 ZIP code. As I read the article “Working toward a solution” (1/27, A-1), it occurred to me that the prescription for healing in Kansas City is the same prescription needed in troubled areas in the world, including Gaza:
Give our children a strong education.
Encourage commerce and jobs.
Teach people to value life.
Reach the at-risk youths and teach them love, not hate.
These are just a few of the solutions offered by The Star’s article. I, for one, plan to help Kansas City and any other troubled area to the best of my ability.
