“”RECOGNIZE! CONFIDE! PREVENT SUICIDE!” That was the mission statement of this year’s Dance 4 Peace event at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium on Friday. The 24th event, hosted by the Lowell Community Health Center’s Teen BLOCK program, showcased local youth not only dancing but also singing and reading national statistics on suicide. Dance 4 Peace focuses on violence prevention with a different theme tying into that every year, with this year’s theme being suicide prevention.”
