    In Clifton’s Nash Park there was a Blood’s related drug stabbing. Very sad , Nash Park used to be one of the most nicest places to play sports back in the day. Clifton was a great town. I hope programs like this really do raise awareness. However, I am fearful we are fighting a losing battle and if the average citizen even knows there is a battle going.

    BTW- the grammar in my above post is horrible. I was careless because I never checked it before I hit the submit button. My apology.
