"We need more activities for kids my age. I'm 18 but we still need stuff for people my age, like a movie theater, skating rink, something fun. They give us all of these Family Dollars. We need more stuff to do because we have to go far out and stuff.
When people try to talk bad about the West End, I try to tell them that it's not bad. It's not violence everyday, it's violence everywhere. I just stand up for the West End. I feel like we get talked about the most, down here, but we have the least. I don't see what they expect, when the resources aren't here." - Sivonne, Parkland
