Brooklyn athletes kick for harmony in Crown Heights

Brooklyn soccer players from Jewish and Caribbean communities are literally kicking off the start to what they hope will be a more peaceful atmosphere in Crown Heights.

The tournament, called Soccer for Harmony, is an effort to prove that people from all ethnic backgrounds can live together peacefully in the borough.

Organizers say the event was a first of its kind, but they couldn't have asked for a better turnout and hope to make it a yearly tradition.
