OUR VOICE!

Sharing your comments in OUR VOICE

As you see that we have many different topics and subjects with positive feedback that will educate you on safety, self-awareness, self-esteem, self-efficacy, motivation, morals, values, maturity, and self-confidence. We also have information on community events, education, employment, and health.  It’s important that we come together no matter what we face on a daily basis. Peace, strengthens power! Positive information shared, has a strong voice.

Everyone may not agree with each other but we still have to live together. There’s so much to learn about each other and the things around us. Our world and our governments are changing rapidly. People need to be spiritually strong, and have healthy bodies, and minds, instead of worrying about how they will make an honest living to eat, and support their families, and pay bills. Lots of people really don’t know where our economy will be headed tomorrow.

Our political, and religious brothers, and sister’s seem to be very busy with so many things that they can sometimes forget about our well being as a people, and the needs of our youth. Lots of teens aren’t able to go to college or universities because they do not have financial ability to do so. “Education should be our countries first priority.”  Life is not about one man. Life is about many men and women. You have heard the saying “united we stand, divided we fall.” We must stand in unity! We must provided for our children and the elderly. We must lower our prices and lower our taxes.

We all have a voice and together we can be heard in the heavens, if we can come together in one mind, in one agreement. I often hear people say, I’m fighting for civil rights, I’m fighting for our kids to be safe while on the streets, I’m fighting for gay rights, I’m fighting against racism, I’m fighting against socialism, I’m fighting for better education. “But who is making peace?” Why don’t someone say, hey what’s all the fighting about? I’m sure that you know that when two or more people fight, that they both lose something or get hurt in the process, or at the end.

Shouldn’t it be about unity? Isn’t it suppose to be about community? I think that everyone’s voice should be heard no matter the race, creed, religion, culture, color, mental level, handicap, or job. Everyone should be heard, because it rains on the rich and the poor. It’s About relationship. It’s about togetherness. It’s about peace. It’s about building each other up. It’s about our teens. It’s about education. It’s about closing some of these prisons. It’s about creating more jobs. It’s about providing housing for the poor and homeless, It’s about bringing back some of the old programs that were healthy for our communities, like the YMCA, etc.

It’s not about fighting against those who are rich or wealthy. We have to live equal without being ridiculed and belittled because we are rich or poor. I could go on and on, telling you what it’s all about, but I’m sure you already know what It’s all about. And one of my questions is where does it all end? Who has enough wisdom, insight, and integrity, to form a worldwide unified, safe, non-violent, mature, calm, assertive, movement that will give us all one voice? It doesn’t take a million men to change the world, but it does take us as a nation to come together on one agreement. “You mean to tell me, that no man or woman on earth can drop their pride, and come together and focus in on something that will give us all one 1 VOICE?

Should we be open to gangs in our neighborhoods and communities?

teenst2

When I was a teen I thought that being in a gang was normal. I thought that it was fun and exciting and a good, fast, way to make money, and I was wrong. I knew better but I was ignorant of the negative influence, and the way I should behave and conduct myself while out in public. I joined a gang for different reasons but the biggest reason was, I had a low self-esteem which made me vulnerable to the manipulation of others, to believe that I was not doing any wrong and that was the way of the world. Not all teens join gangs but some do, and some end up on drugs, in jail or prison, or dead. I don’t mind talking about this issue because I was in an organization for thirty years, and if I can save one child or teen, it is way worth more than a ton of gold.

For whatever reason they do associate themselves in a gang, I would like to say that it’s not life. So what can we do to prevent our teens from joining a gang? I think that our teens should have mandatory classes in school about self-esteem. We should start putting up information on self-esteem on big billboards all around every city. Parents and guardians should promote self-esteem in the household when children are very young. All the people in the community should be activists against gangs and create a positive movement that aligns positive self-worth with conscientious decision-making.

I don’t think we need a brilliantly written book with lots of big words to read. All we need is a basic book on self-esteem that will teach children about the complexity of being assertive, aggressive, passive-aggressive, and passive. They should also be taught, self-awareness, morals, values, and behavior modification, etc.

Also I think that we should consider all gangs as organized crime, because it is. Anyone that calls themselves a leader of any gang has laws, policies, rules, and principles that control the way it’s members think and feel, etc. It starts from the top down to the foot solders. Organize crime is against the law. A gang members is affiliated with organized crime. Stand for unity in the community. If you would like for me to speak at a high school or any event about this, please contact me at this number. # 352-575-6110. I Will be more than happy to be of service to you. Thank You for your participation in 1 VOICE!
