SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - City of Savannah leaders have held "Savannah Forward" town halls for the past few weeks in each district to recognize the importance of young people for the community's future.
Wednesday's town hall at the Civic Center was geared specifically towards 13 to 18-year-olds, and plenty of young people showed up.
One youth in the audience said, "Fights aren't just fights anymore. There are gunshots, so it's like we got to teach everyone you can't stop everything with your fists. You can't stop everything with a gun. You can't stop everything with knives. You're going to end up dead or in jail."
