We at The Narrative Matters have been following our media partners at Cure the Violence. to raise awareness of a growing concern nationwide. So here is the narratives from the newly appointed Director Fredrick Echols as he shows his appreciation to all the supporters of his organization.

 “It was inspiring to receive so much support from Cure Violence Global’s (CVG) partners around the globe at last night’s A World Without Violence  gala celebration. This is encouraging especially considering recent violent acts that have occurred in the U.S. ” 

“The news on gun violence should not paralyze or make us immune to these tragedies as they unfold in quick succession. Even if you saw the event live, I want to invite you to watch the recording of the gala, confident that it will comfort, inspire, and bring a measure of peace and hope into your life right now.” Fredrick L. Echols, M. D.

Again here is a look at last night’s virtual gala, it is over one hour and thirty minutes long. It is full of great stories, speeches and entertainment. So, get ready for an exciting moment to enjoy.
