This blog is much like the immaturity and aggression displayed by the teens. What we as a community must do is take this and learn from it, so it does happen again.
I am 36years old and I made mistakes in my life, however what those young boys did was disgusting, unwarranted and reckless.
Fights go on across the city, across the states and the entire world. We cannot change the world, nevertheless; as the late Enis Cosby said, "If we change ourselves then we are making a change in the world." On that note let us talk to our children, the parents of other children and get to the reason behind this deep seeded hatred, that is poisoning our children.
This situation could have been uglier than it was. Some homeowners have weapons in their house. On that so many lives could have been taken not only physically but, mentally and spiritually as well.
I believe that the adolescents who trespassed onto the property of Malvasi should be charged and sentenced accordingly along with counseling.
I believe that the parents of the adolescents should be charged, sentenced and undergo counseling as well.
I do not know what went on between Mr. Malvasi and the other young boy earlier that day--I do know it not warrant a group of young impulsive and angry males going to his home and attacking he and his father.
Again, I hope that we will learn from this sad and ugly situation and make a change within ourselves and our homes, that will ultimately change the world.
