Kathryn Cooper-Nicholas wrote this issue's First Person essay, which is about how she became a crime fighter of sorts in Baltimore. Her tactics aren't done with brute force but with prayer. In the past few months, you may have seen her and a group of people participating in prayer vigils on various street corners in Baltimore.
