MILWAUKEE -- A young Milwaukee mother saw the violence that unfolded at Sherman Park last weekend. She decided to go out with her four-year-old son and hand out free hugs and cupcakes.

Her effort struck a chord for so many in the community, and inspired this outreach spot by TODAY'S TMJ4.

She says she has gotten countless messages on Facebook and plans to continue her efforts Saturday at Sherman Park.
