1. Native American girl poem:
             We moved west, we died,
            You might call it a genocide,
            Walking west in the sun we fried,
            Survive? We tried,
            All so America could thrive,
            All at the expense of our lives



2. Youth Basketball Organizer: Call me crazy, but I think my idea might work. What does everyone in this community always talk about?, we need to promote peace and cooperation among or youth, those in gangs in particular. Well this is exactly what including rival gangs in the games will do. I say what better way to form these bonds and mend those troubled souls better than over a game of basketball. Boss, if you ask me I say lets run with it.
