Photographs speak volumes

In the article "National Black Group Organizes to Identify Programs That Work," March 29, there is an accompanying photograph of three little boys about 4 years old. Two of the three boys are playing with toy guns. That picture speaks volumes to me: children playing with guns. Unless we as adults look seriously at that picture, we will have a continuing violent future, regardless of the number of programs the Black Community Crusade for Children can make work. Eugene S. Redner, Chelmsford, Mass.
