Erica Wright, 61 stood proudly before a wall plastered with newspaper articles and graduation pictures of children and alumni of her program.

She is the founder of the Westside Cultural & Athletic Club, a grandiose name for a shoestring program designed to offer the kids of her impoverished, drug-ridden neighborhood constructive alternatives.  Wright has operated the program for more than 30 years from a two-story house next to her childhood home on Detroit's West side.

When I visited her earlier this spring, she pointed with pride to the articles.  But her pride was mixed with sorrow.

"I have stopped going to funerals," she said, after recounting how several of the children pictured had been killed over the years.  She then pulled open a drawer full of obituaries.

"This is ridiculous,"  She said.  "You have no idea of the tragedies these kids go through and survive."
