Local children talked about the problem of youth violence in their own words on Saturday.

Thousands of middle school students wrote essays for the "Do the Write Thing" challenge.

With 245 of them, one male and one female student from each participating school, read their essays before parents and teachers at a ceremony at Minute Maid Park today.
