Ghetto Life 101

I learned that life is really rough and its not the kid's fault for their surroundings. Their poverty level was because of their parents. Most kids never make it out of the ghetto because they're either shot or put in jail for shooting someone or stealing. It's just a big trap there. There is a way out but you have to try to get out. The kids that did the interviews knew that they had to be somebody to do something with their life. They made, told and heard the stories of many people that are in the ghetto and it made me realize how hard it is in their life. They made the bad things seem like a normal thing for them to do. Because that's the way they grew up in their city.
