BROOKLYN - Dozens of youths marched in Flatbush today to promote a positive message.

A group from the Flatbush Seventh Day Adventist Church joined other community members in a march against bullying and gun violence.

The church group marched against bullying back in October, and not long after, they received a letter from Vice President Joe Biden requesting that their next march carry an anti-gun violence message as well.

Club director Delroy Cooper says Biden's letter and his own personal experience of being held up at gunpoint motivated him to spread the anti-gun message. He says the church group plans to hold more marches on a regular basis.
