****Thanks Indian,Thats all we can do is pray. I pray they rebuild.With chuches,centers,and outreach programes.A place were the poor can grow.Get better education,jobs,and learn how to live in society.A place were our kids dont have to run to gangs,and selling drugs.But run to the Lord,and the family he gives us.If Chattanooga work together and stop running we could save our kids.From gangs and drugs.

I agree with both comments,but if you haven't lived in the projects you don't know there problems.My mother was moved from McCallie Homes in 2003. Its was scary for us and the people in the new area.For a while we couldn't sit outside.New faces are targets for gangs.No matter what the police do,our youth run to gangs. Broken families,low income,no education,they feel as if thats there way out. We have to save our kids. Stop doing away with us.Listen to us,we may not have money but we bleed blood.You put us out and dont look back. Just another poor family,not all of us are gang members.Times are hard right now,gas prices,no jobs,these sites are the only thing keeping us from being homeless.Each of these sites are like a town full of family.We live so close we know each other.When you tear them down you take our family away.Take time and think how you would feel,if someone took all you have away.Your friends,family,the only place you call home for years all gone.Not because what you have done,just because they can.You find yourself in a town full of strangers,lost, poor,and confused.How would you feel? To be throwed in the deep end,and you can't swim. Save these sites and you will save LIFES!!! Praying hard for a change.....
