Hugs all around

Isiah Thomas hugs a community member at the Peace Basketball Tournament

 

9/22/2012 - Shooting the PEACE Basketball Tournament at St. Sabina Gymnasium -Ballin' for Peace in Chicago! A great day, giving the youth of Chicago a glimpse of the power of positive and peaceful events. Lots of stars showed up to provide their support and spread the word about stopping the violence: Father Michael Pfleger, Cobe Williams, Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, Isiah Thomas, Quentin Richardson, Jabari Parker, and more. Here's to hoping for sustained efforts to raise up the underserved sections of Chicago. We need to do a better job of publicizing the good that comes out of these communities instead of stereotyping and focusing on the bad.
