Acting against violence

In this week's column the Sentinel reports on ways in which people are responding to the urgent demand to end violence in American streets and homes.

Columnist Derrick Z. Jackson expressed dismay in The Boston Globe (January 20, 1995) over an experience he and his nine-year-old son had shared on a flight one Sunday between Las Vegas and Boston. The in-flight movie—even without rented headphones—exposed them to graphic depictions of the killing or hurting of no fewer than eighty-five people. "No child or parent," wrote Mr. Jackson, "should feel the price they have to pay for modern travel is a Sunday morning of primitive brutality."
