County Coroner Dr. O'dell Owens - "We've got too many killings,"
said Dr. Owens. "This has got to stop! You kids could have been
killed. All these stray bullets. This has got to stop! About 80 percent
of the homicide victims did not finish high school. Here is
a man that sees the true pain and suffering as he performs his very
difficult job. He has been very vocal lately in calling for people
to step up and do whatever is necessary to prevent further violence
and killing. "Everybody wanna turn their backs on it. That's
the problem. Everybody wanna turn their backs. This keeps happening.
It's got to stop!"
- Although Benjamin is not a well known leader or involved in politics
or the community he has made self improvement a priority in his life
as well as helping his family. A young man of just 26 years he has
not had the formal education of most his age but he is working hard
and will be getting his GED soon. He has made it thus far in life
without using drugs or alcohol. He has made learning about business
and making good use of his time a priority. But what Benjamin lacks
in book smarts he makes up for with a big heart. He is always thinking
of how to help those around him in need. Having just started his own
custom jewelry business to earn some extra money, you can see his
