Memorial Day weekend brought more violence to the city of Flint as multiple people were shot proving once again that when it gets hot outside Flint becomes a warzone.

I'm honestly starting to hate it here all over again. I was born and raised in Flint and my love comes and goes. I've lost friends and family to this place and it's not getting better. What is it that's driving people to wanna shoot each other so quickly? It's like kids don't fight anymore. It's straight to the guns every time and I'm so tired of it.

  • May 29 at approximately 8:52a.m., a male subject was shot in the 1600 block of New York Ave. The victim received treatment at a local hospital and is in good condition.
  • May 29 at approximately 4:20 a.m., a male subject was shot near Pengelly apartments on the south end of Flint. The victim received treatment at a local hospital and is in good condition.
  • May 29 at approximately 11:40 p.m., a male subject was shot in the 400 block of S. Saginaw St. The victim received treatment at a local hospital and is in critical condition.
  • May 30 at approximately 12:34 a.m., a female subject was shot in the 5500 block of Susan St. The victim received treatment at a local hospital and is in good condition.  Source:NBC25.com

I can't tell you how angry this makes me. Why can't we just have a normal positive weekend? Every other city can do it, why can't we? I know other cities have problems as well, but it happens rarely compared to Flint. If it's a holiday weekend someone is almost guaranteed to get shot. And before you start it has absolutely nothing to do with politics and who is in office. It's the culture, Flint culture is destroying our youth and poisoning our minds. I don't have the solution, but I do have a voice and so do you. Take the time to make a statement, raise your voice and let the youth know this isn't how we should be living our lives.
