CHICAGO- One night my mom didn’t come home at her usual time, I waited up for her for a long time. When the phone rang, it sounded like a bull horn blowing really loud. I picked up the phone and heard the words…”Sorry, I didn’t call earlier I had to work late.”I just said okay mom, be safe. I hurried to hang up because I didn’t want her to hear the crackling of fear and terror in my voice. I wiped the tears from my eyes and thanked God it was my mom and not the “BAD NEWS” calling.
The life of a kid living in an unsanctioned war zone, a combat area in which the rights of neutrals are suspended, as such an area on the high seas, where ships flying a neutral flag are subject to attack.
C-House USA Basketball is the safe haven for many of Chicago’s youth. It’s the Ship in the night with the neutral flag, where kids can go to play tag and put the score on the board.
