Mark Wahlberg Returns to His Hometown
Current statistics reveal one-third of all high school students drop out before graduation. Wahlberg, who dropped out when he was only 14, is now using his success to give back by working with the Boys & Girls Club of America and serving as spokesman for Taco Bell’s “Graduates to Go” program. Anderson visits Mark’s hometown of Dorchester, Mass. and has dinner with his mother, Alma, and his brothers, Jimmy and Paul, at their new family restaurant, “Wahlburgers.”
Anderson also speaks with Ross Cappicchioni, who at age 17 was gunned down in broad daylight by a 15-year-old peer as part of a gang initiation. Ross shares his remarkable story of resilience and tells Anderson how he survived such a horrific ordeal. Plus, tips on what you can do in your own community to make a positive change.
