Sports Photos Tell the Story!
I really enjoyed the photographs in this week's Sports section, January 10, 2013 edition. Washington Informer photographer John De Freitas' photographs of the Washington Redskins and the Washington Wizards are excellent.
I like the way he always captures the action in his photographs. His photographs can make you feel as if you are right there on the field or on the court next to the players. I think he does such a great job, all I can say is thanks, Mr. De Freitas!
Positive Coverage Makes a Difference
The article "Art-Based Program Helps Groom Young Males," by Elton Hayes, January 10, 2013 is exactly the kind of story that keeps me reading The Washington Informer week after week. Stories like this one are so refreshing to read, especially when our young black males are involved. If we only read the other papers in the city and listened to the mainstream media outlets we would think that all of our black males are either in jail or on their way to jail.
I know we have a tremendous amount of work to do in our community to combat crime and poverty, and that goes double for our young folks, but there is work being done and we are making some progress based on the article. Keep reporting on those positive stories Washington Informer; let everyone know they are out there.
