SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -
Members of the Savannah community came together on Sunday for an open floor discussion to address gun violence.
The room was full of people from different races and organizations all coming together as one to talk about solutions to stop violence in Savannah. Topics like gun violence prevention, parents and communities taking accountability for children, even generational gaps and poverty were only a few of the topics that were discussed at the meeting.
Many people expressed their sadness outrage at the fact that three homicides have happened only two months into 2018, asking questions like "What is the community missing?" and "How can we get the community back and most of all how can the community come together and get a hold of the violence that is taking place among our youth?" One attendee had some powerful words to share.
"For every child that we lose, that is a dream that is buried," said Sandra Smith-McKeithen. "I am so dismayed when I see that just in the last three weeks.. we've lost a 12-year-old, a 20-year-old, a 15-year-old...all of those are dreams that we are sending into prison or into a graveyard.The main issue is getting these children to understand that they do have purpose and instilling hope back into them."
Others like, 15-year-old Dekevian George, says priorities not being in order is a major issue that causes some violence.
George has had friends and family killed because of gun violence and says he wants to be a leader. He was the only teen at the meeting.
"What is the point?" asked Dekevian George. "Why do you have to take someone else life? Does it make you feel accomplished? There is no point in taking someone's life and it's nothing worth taking someone's life because you wouldn't want someone to take your life."

Dominique's World Co-founder Olga Williams along with Alderman Van Johnson and Savannah's Mayor Eddie DeLoach were all guest Speakers and shared in the honor of speaking with the young people of their community about the negative effects silence can have on their neighborhoods, friends and loved ones when we decide not to speak up about #gunviolence.

"LABOR OF LOVE " was a complete success. It was an honor to collaborate with So many Wonderful Organizations today. We all have different: mission statements, fundraising goals, members, and reasons behind our organizations, but one thing that clearly matters is our "Labor Of Love" Thank you Savannah for showing up and showing out.
To the citizens in Texas Love from Savannah is on the way...#Dominiquesworld#ohsoshaded#saveouryouth#sprint#tmobile#collegeparkbaptistchurch#LB4# and so many more....
In 2007, Congress designated Sept. 25 as the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. Robert and Charlotte Hullinger, of Cincinnati, formed Parents of Murdered Children following the 1978 murder of their 19-year-old daughter, Lisa, while she was studying in Germany. The annual day of observance is on the date Lisa was murdered. The annual National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims gives us all the opportunity to remember those lost to homicide, and honor their memories. The purpose is to focus on the impact of murder on families, and communities, and ways to support and serve survivors.
Sending prayers and love to all of our survivor families....

2019 has been full of aspiring individuals and organizations that are making a great difference in communities around the world. When Dominique's World was founded @sirens_imaging Mr. Roy Flamer was instrumental in supporting Dominique's World in ANYWAY possible. One of his many attributes to our foundation was to produce The Bowties and Blazers all Male Fashion Show along with @poisedbydannii Ms. Danyelle Dyson. This year Dominiques World honored Mr. Flamer a surprise award during The Bowties and Blazers all male fashion show.
Pictured are images of Mr. ROY at the last fashion show that he would produce. He will forever be missed by not only Dominique's World but by his entire community.
It was a humbling experience to be presented in memory of Mr. Roy a donation from Sirens Imaging Group from their Winter Childrens Show. #lovewins #mentoring #lifematters #stopGUNviolence #putthegunsdown #saveoursons #saveourkids #saveourfamilies #youthmatter #bowtiesandblazers #malefashion #foreversirens #flyhighRoy #doitforDom 💙💙🙏🏽💥💙🖤
