Horns beeping and people weaving through other people, like a waterfall flowing over unmovable rocks. Their destination is of the utmost importance even if it's to just to meet up with a friend at a local bar or club. You can hear the pounding of footsteps and voices screaming bringing mustard colored cars to a hault and it may not even be rush hour. This is the sound of the Big Apple in which I reside but many times this big city can cause a massive headache.
I've lived in New York City most of my life and it really does have it's ups and downs. The violence, rage and ignorance can seem so prevalent that it seems to suffocate our children, communities and schools. However, there are those among us who are on the other side of the coin. Some desire peace, love and knowledge. Peace for the streets, love for the people and knowledge to do better. A family member once told me, "If you knew, you do better." This I believe to be true.
New York City is one of many cities. I'm sure we all face the problems and issues within our communities. We can either look at the issues and do nothing; or we can pray for peace and take steps towards making it better. We can't wait for President Obama or our local governors to act. Creating a better future for generations to come, starts with us.
Live in Peace of Mind. Keep it Jesus. Much Love.
