10,000 Strong Boston A Call to Action
It is time to stand up, take responsibility and be accountable. Who Cares? We do. We doin' good in the hood. Are you tired of the drugs, guns, violence, crime, broken families, lack of guidance and direction. Are you in need of service? Will you serve? Do you need support? Will you support? Together we are 10,000 strong. If one can make a difference, what will 10,000 strong do? Think of it as a mini Million Man March for Boston.
