Welcome to the Home of "Lost Innocence: Understanding Youth Who Kill." Our main goals of the publication of this website and our book is to help create public awareness, as well as prevent the growing number of violent acts being committed by our youth.
“DID YOU KNOW THAT THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH FOR YOUTH BETWEEN 15 AND 19 IS GUNSHOT WOUNDS?”
Over the last decades, thousands upon thousands upon thousands of precious lives have been killed by the most unlikely source imaginable-our youth. The act of murder is no longer being committed solely by an isolated segment of violent criminals. It has extended its boundaries and spilled over into all classifications of society. The “new” profile for young perpetrators of homicide now includes everyone’s social, economic, religious, and ethnic backgrounds, thus, affecting us all.
Please join us in playing an active role against this growing violence that affects us all.
The authors of "Lost Innocence: Understanding Youth Who Kill" feel that in order to truly make amends to our victims, families, and communities, we had to understand the reason behind our tragic choices. Now that we comprehend our actions and consequences, we feel it is our responsibility to prevent other from making the same, life-altering decisions. In our attempts to make restitution, we're aware that we will never be able to restore a life, but we can very possibly prevent the loss of another one.
Who better to explain why children are killing children than those who have committed the very act we want to understand better? Yes, the authors of this book are convicted murders, but they are reformed, educated, and passionate about reaching out to save our children from traveling down the same rocky path they once traversed. If your child has been diagnosed with cancer and is dying, you not send your child to a psychotherapist to be treated you would send your child to a specialist who treats cancer patients. Our experiences alone make us the best suited to identify, articulate, and reach out to the growing population of misunderstood children. “WHO BETTER TO EXPLAIN WHY CHILDREN ARE KILLING CHILDREN THAN THOSE WHO HAVE COMMITTED THE VERY ACT WE WISH TO UNDERSTAND?”
