The, “Post for Change”! If you have followed along in my first and second posts, you should know that I have been discussing a topic that is very dear to my heart, and that I feel very passionately about; the murder rate in Philadelphia. This is an increasingly ongoing problem, and I have been working on my own way to try and change this, more of on a smaller scale though. My entire blog has been leading up to this, where I explain to you how I have figured out how to create my own personal post for change.
Throughout the past 3 or so weeks, I have been researching, and talking to as many people as I can to try and learn as much as I can about the violence in Philadelphia, as well as one of the main ways that violence can be reduced. After evaluating everything, I have realized that one of the most effective ways to reduce violence is to enforce an effective neighborhood watch. This has been shown to reduce the amount of door-to-door violence, which would result in a significantly lower murder rate in Philadelphia. Even though this is the most effective way, due to my lack of resources, as well as age, I did not think it would be very realistic for me to attempt to set up neighborhood watches in Philadelphia. So I decided to make more awareness about the Philadelphia murder rate. I believe that awareness may result in people having a reality check, and understanding everything that has and continues to happen in Philadelphia.
order to create this awareness, I have created a piece of original content that
I have also posted onto my Tumblr, Facebook, as well as my Twitter in order to
increase the amount of people that are informed of this problem. My original
content piece consists of a video of a montage of photos that shows you the
sadness that comes with violence, especially murder. This video also has a
piece of background music that not only is also a piece of original content,
but also fits perfectly with the video. The talented Ronald Harper; who is
doing a blog of his own if you would like to check it out; has composed this
rap, and is performed by me.
