How do you manage to live in a country overrun by street gangs and crime? In Honduras, violence from gangs continues to be driven by drug trafficking, corruption, and economic inequality. And more people, especially women and children, are leaving their homes. We'll examine the impact crime is having in Honduran communities and what should be done to address it. Join the conversation at 1930GMT.
