Neighbors from Karlov and Potomac streets in West Humboldt sing Christmas carols by the fire at the community garden.

Life in West Humboldt can be tough, several murders in the last month alone. Morale amongst neighbors in the Pulaski Avenue corridor between Chicago Avenues and North Avenue is low. A group of neighboors in the effort to curb violence and bring peace have banded together and held prayer vigils and meetings, tonight police looking by and a bonfire burning in the community garden at Karlov and Potomac streets, prayers were said, words of encouragement were spoken and Christmas carols were sung. All for peace.
