Love the Lou

By Sam Skaggs

Love The Lou is a group of St. Louis citizens who love their city and wish to bring unity and identity to all of the diverse neighborhoods. I was downtown shooting a story on Meghan Norris, a girl that attends Harvester Christian Church, Love The Lou. While I was there I got the opportunity to listen to Jamel.
Jamel is a twelve year old boy from downtown St. Louis. He shares the story of his neighborhood and talks about difficult times that he has experienced in his life. In the video Jamel never shows any kind of a sad emotion. He will go from talking about how he plays wii with his friends, to his best friend who was shot and killed. His tone of voice has very little change if any.
