We believe that without neighborhoods, churches, businesses, individuals, organizations, community leaders, and the law enforcement behind a combined effort to improve, enhance and lift up our communities we will continue to fall short in our goals to have communities we can raise our children in safely.
Our children will one day have to go out in this world, and our IDEA is that if they take this experience with them they will never fail. They will want the same for their children and their communities.
The words you hear affect your thoughts, the thoughts you have affect your actions, your actions affect your habits and your habits affect your lifestyle. If all you hear is bad things, then you will have bad thoughts. If you only have bad thoughts you will do bad actions, if you do bad actions your habits will be bad. If you have bad habits your will have a lifestyle that is bad.
What we want to do as a community based organization is to get everyone together with one plan. We want to use the resources that are already set up, create new resources if needed and start changing the aforementioned process so that one day our kids will know that there is a better way.
We want to take the policies in our schools and enhance them with programs encouraging safety. We want to teach our children diversity and differences are acceptable and that it is those differences that make this world grow. We want to create a nation of compassionate and caring children one community at a time. We want to make schools not only safe but fun places to learn and grow into well-balanced contributing members of society.
