Thank you, Jesus, for the days of old when people in the neighborhood got along with each other. Jesus, we really miss those days when the old people were not afraid to walk the streets, when the young people were not killing each other. Lord Jesus, we pray to you today to please make our neighborhoods better. The past was good, but now we are living in present times. Please, Jesus, we need your help. Amen.
