    for the focus of the initiative.  

    Some of your recommendations seem to require Congress or the courts or involve jurisdictional conflicts and that doesn't rule them out but I think it underlines the need to collaborate with those who have resources and hearts ready to do something now.  Obama includes government as one of the participants of this, so we'll see how far the government role extends.  At least with some of Holder's moves and Promise Zones, there are some government resources already working on issues that will help young people of color.  I also know there is never enough.

    But I'm glad to see this initiative and will be looking for ways I might help it accomplish some meaningful goals.

    By the way, I clicked on this diary because of the title and the fact that I've been deeply immersed in McPherson's amazing Civil War history.  Are you sure you want to invoke John Brown, the man who murdered 5 men 3 years before that quote, as a reference for this?  You might also miss some people scanning titles who might genuinely want to talk about MBK.
