5/24/07 Ray Cook

Today at Noon we had Ray Cook on.  He is the founder and organizer of On Our Shoulders, an organization that he runs to keep city kids from lives of violence and crime.  He comes on the show often.  We like his work and his frankness.

He spoke today about a rally he is organizing for this weekend.  Several people have emailed about it asking for more information.

The Let’s Stop the Madness rally will be held on Saturday, May 26th from 11am to 1pm at Evergreen Park at Edmondsom and Braddish Avenues.  That is the same location where Keonya Christian Cannon was shot on April 20th. 

For more information, call Ray Cook at (410) 261-9911.

The Baltimore Sun wrote an article on Keonya after she was shot.  Access it here.

We’re happy to let you know that Keonya finally left Shock Trauma today, after more than a month.  She’s still connected to more machines than you could imagine, but she’s glad to be going home.
