BROOKLYN - The East New York stabbings of two children Sunday were on the minds of many at a safety awareness event at Borough Hall Thursday night.
Attendees were given safety tips on topics like "stranger danger" and how to prepare a "go bag."
Officials held a moment of silence for the two young children. They say it's important to give community members as many tools as possible to stay safe.
