The Story: A Classroom In Michigan

<a href="" target="_blank">[Click Me]</a>

Yafinceio and Michael's back story was featured on NPR's "The Story" in December of 2011.

A year and a half after this story was aired, Michael and Yafinceio are partners in Peace During War, working together to change the hearts and minds of young people and keep them from wasting their lives in prison or dying young. They have sworn off violence and learned to forgive each other for the past.

They know that they are blessed to be alive and are dedicating their lives to serve as positive role models for forgiveness and personal change. Both expect to graduate KVCC this year and, through Peace During War, are using their past and communication talents to do good in the community.
