Jennings Michael Burch RIP

It is with great sorrow that we note the passing of local author Jennings Michael Burch. He passed away on January 15, 2013 at the age of 71. He was the author of They Cage the Animals at Night. This was his harrowing account of his five year stint in foster homes. But he rose above his troubled start in life and worked as a taxi driver as well as a New York City Policeman. He was a regular visitor to schools and drove home his message to students: “Please Don’t Hurt Me!”
