Keeping young people off the streets and away from the violent and troublesome gangs is essential in building a just and humane society.
Let Me Tell You How I Got Saved is an inspiring memoir from former gang-member Charles Lewis Anthony. It tells about his journey as a young man born and raised in a place where gangs and violence are everywhere. While Anthony’s book for a better life has a happy and serene ending, we cannot say the same for hundreds of others. And it makes us think what could have happened to these hundreds of felons and gang members had they been kept off the streets and away from the influence of gangs and delinquents.
