  • Comments Off on Hot Off The Press: Thank you Teens for inspiring me!

i’m leaving the TEDXTeen event totally on fire

it’s incredible how these young visionaries are making such a mark on the world at an early age

to those out there just plugging along with life, let their stories push you out of your comfort zone

don’t let age or circumstance stop you from pursuing SOMETHING that makes the world better

  • Comments Off on Hot off The Press: Showing our youth luv

i’m tired of folks bad mouthing our youth. i’ve had it with those who bemoan that no one is doing anything about it.  there are thousands of leaders out there doing their thing. quietly fighting the good fight, making a difference and showing youth love…

lift your spirits by watching what is right; community leaders taking back the streets.

support the documentary ‘interrupters’ on PBS today…

FRONTLINE follows a group of former gang leaders trying to “interrupt” shootings and protect their communities from the violence they once committed. The film follows the inner workings of CeaseFire, an innovative program in Chicago designed to prevent shootings, including weekly meetings where the interrupters report on the simmering disputes and the senseless shootings in their neighborhoods.
