A Day of Service

"Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness.

We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love."

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

On January 16th, YOURS students with other young people and community leaders from the Norfolk area participated in the Rally Against Gun Violence at the Bell Tower in Richmond. State legislators and community representatives spoke on this topic and the use of safe gun laws.

YOURS was afforded the opportunity to meet with Virginia State Delegates Jackie Glass and Angelia Williams Graves in their respective offices in Richmond. The students were very encouraged by the messages given to them by these delegates.

With all the violence that has taken place in the Hampton Roads area recently, YOURS seeks your support in prayers for our young people and this community. We are encouraged by the words of Jesus in Matthew 18:19-20.

“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
