Your show today with special guest Stefan Brown

Hey Lorraine, Great show and loving the vibes. Great that Stefan is on the air with you. He is inspiring and speaks the truth with wise words of the realities of the inflicting dangers our young children realistically face out there within our community. Knife and gun crime has totally spiraled out of control and taking young innocent lives away from their friends and families literally daily. Thinking a knife or gun can easily resolve a conflict simply isn't a solution and if those whom are out there doing this begin to truly realise the impacts of this on those left behind to pick up the pieces perhaps our community wouldn't be suffering such unfortunate consequences.
