Where's the outrage, Boston? -- These buttons shouldn't exist. They're souvenirs of the 70+ murder victims in the city last year, created by Clementina Chery at the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute. Louis was one of those victims too, and Clementina is his mother. Can you believe how much of her time, at this PEACE INSTITUTE she founded, is spent consoling the families of MORE MURDER VICTIMS? She should take those buttons and pin them all over Menino and O'Brien's offices...or maybe pass the basket around at a few suburban PTA meetings? Christ. The Institute also offers a Peace Curriculum for area schools, and is always looking for donations and volunteers...let's hope it puts itself out of business, soon.
