AS THE ST. LOUIS METROPOLITAN AREA CONTINUES TO BE ROCKED BY CRIME AND VIOLENCE, GUN VIOLENCE IN PARTICULAR, IT IS TIME “WE” EMBRACE FAMILIES MOURNING THE LOSS OF THEIR LOVED ONES TO THE CULTURE OF VIOLENCE THAT “WE” FAIL TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND CONTINUE TO TOLERATE.  THESE FAMILIES WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.  PARENTS, SIBLINGS, AND CHILDREN WILL CARRY THIS PAIN FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES.  THIS BEHAVIOR HAS BECOME ACCEPTED AND EXPECTED.  FOR 2 GENERATIONS; IT IS ALL THEY HAVE SEEN AND KNOWN.  WE MUST MOVE TO CHANGE.

THE MOVE PROJECT, CREATED BY INDIVIDUALS MOURNING THE LOSS OF LOVED ONES TO CRIME AND VIOLENCE WAS A CONSCIOUS DECISION TO BRING PUBLIC AWARENESS TO BETTER FAMILY LIFE’S CALL FOR MEMBERS OF THE ST. LOUIS COMMUNITY TO “TURN TO EACH OTHER NOT ON EACH OTHER.”  IN THE WORDS OF MR. JAMES CLARK, VP OF COMMUNITY OUTREACH OF BETTER FAMILY LIFE, “WE HAVE MARCHED FOR WHAT HAS BEEN DONE TO US. NOW IT IS TIME THAT WE MARCH FOR WHAT WE HAVE DONE TO EACH OTHER.”
