Blinded by Gang Violence

During today's Mission Possible, we told you about Lamont Levels.
He was only 12 when he started a gang.

Levels is now trying to help at-risk kids in the Dallas area to see there's a better way to live their lives.
He's working with LaKerrie Owens, the founder and executive director of Dallas-based Youth Conversion.
Here's a link to her group.
