Moms mourning sons share hopes for youth
With grieving hearts and painful memories, four mothers shared with the 11 News I-Team their hopes for Baltimore's youth. An uptick of youth violence in Baltimore has left a wide swath of impact. What has happened this year is eerily reminiscent for grieving mothers who have lost children to homicide and have -- not of their own choosing -- become experts on the subject. Cynthia Bruce, a long-time educator; Daphne Alston, co-founder of Mothers of Murdered Sons and Daughters; Karen Ashimi, a prison employee; and Rhonda Curbeam, a salesperson, all feel a sense of regret.
