"What so many of these kids need more than anything is someone to be able to talk to them, talk to them, talk to them and then when there is a crisis, and there will be many, to be able to talk them through it."
Katie Davis - journalist, mentor, conflict mediator, gardener, camp counselor, community activist - has lived most of her life in the Adams Morgan section of Washington, DC where she has undertaken a one woman campaign to save kids in her inner city neighborhood.
