Earthday Kids Interviewed on 6 ABC News


EAST LANSDOWNE, Pa. – July 30, 2013 (WPVI) — Less than two weeks ago, four young girls were caught in the middle of a shooting in East Lansdowne. They are well enough to talk now and waiting for the gunman to be found.

11-year-old Angel Bowen and her family wanted to talk to me about more than just what happened that night.

Angel’s mom has a message for the entire community:

“No one’s talking about it, no one’s saying anything,” she said. “And it’s not fair. And she might not be able to walk. She might not get the feelings back in her leg.”

And Angel says she’s now afraid to even leave the house.

“I believe they need to get stricter with this gun law because it’s really ridiculous how these children are able to get these guns,” said Arnette Bowen.

On the night of the shooting, the girls were having a sleepover because they were set to participate in a community action project the next morning.

They were to plant seeds and clean up for The Earth Day Kids, who recite a special greeting at every get-together.

The Earth Day Kids engage in community projects to foster positive connections.

The program’s visual and creative arts director, ASCHAK  he spells his name with all capital letters – says they will never give up.

“These are things that we may not have to deal with, because in the course of educating our children then we are transforming our communities,” he said.
