Excellent piece; as someone who participates in Father Pflegers walks, as well as volunteers in after school programs at Cabrini, this really resonated. And I was terribly touched by Mr. Nickeas's descriptions - having never been in a war, as he put it. When will the urgency of this problem (in many urban areas) strike the country as a whole? Thank you

Best story I've heard in a long time.
Mr. Nickeas' words, and particularly his inflection and world-weary tone were haunting.
I'm going to seek out his earlier articles as well. Thanks for the great story.
