On the River

A few days ago I went out on the river on Launch 5 with a group of kids from school. One of the crew members of the boat used to work at the school that is for youth from difficult pasts. Some of them have had problems with the police in the past and many didn't trust them. Some local police were kind enough to board with us an talk to the kids. By the end of the their time together the police and most wary youth were shaking hands and the kids had a new found respect for police.
