(Community) Is Change Really Going To Come?

Here is a quick thought before I hit the road for a basketball game...

Every day that we wake up, we have the option to be peaceful or hateful…to do positive or negative…to help or to harm…to lead or to follow…to stay the same or change.
As our new president Barack Obama enters into presidency, one quote we hear on a consistent basis is “change is coming”. One thing that society needs to understand, we CAN NOT just sit back and think that Obama is going to do all the work alone. For change to happen in your community, it’s going to take help from all.

The society that we live in today has lost the concept of community. Back in day, even before my time, communities really were communities. People supported shops and thrifts in your community, every adult in the neighborhood and at church was your parent, there was unity, trust and love.

Now days, youth don’t understand the concept of respect. Instead of parents being in charge and head of the house, kids are coming and going as they please. Parents are not even parents of their own kids, let alone kids in the community. Neighbors don’t even know each other and there is no sense of love, unity or community.

As much as you want to see change..what are you doing to help?

Peace and Blessings!!!

Yes sir! I think as a community we must figure out how we can settle our differences and achieve one goal. It seems as if our only obstacles are our egos and closed-mindedness. But like we say, "Our work is never done" so until it is, we must continue to fight and work for CHANGE!
