Detroit Metro Area Wake Up!

Since the month of May came upon us, there have been two murders, two-three car accidents and a police raid that has brought the death of children; school age children. The perpetrators have been young and old. Come on now, we have got to get our acts together and fix this atrocious attitude some resident in the area have.

We all know what to do about earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes. Why can’t we figure out what to do about this disastrous condition the metro area seems to be in? How long before we get tired? How long before we take control of our lives again? You tell me. I grew up in the metro area when racism was the problem and gangster we aplenty but, we fix that. Why can’t we figure out what to do now?

Here is my suggestion. Stand up and stand tall. Remember that old movie that ran the line, “I’m mad as hell and I am not taking it anymore.” People you need to get mad again. And I mean really mad. Too long this has been building because you can bet money this didn’t just happen. It started a while ago. But we turned our heads and said, “Not my problem.” Well guess what, it is your problem now. All of you need to start at home and explain to your children this is not the way to resolve disagreements. Shooting a gun and running wild is not the answer.

Are you with me? Are you ready to put your two cents in? Or do you want to live in fear behind barred windows? Stop and think about it, this is the future. It makes me think of the movie in which cars were burned and people were slaughtered. I can’t remember the name of it but if you can drop me a line because I know you know what movie I’m talking about.

Again I ask, when are you going to jump in and take control again. Run the show and get rid of the hooligans. Take charge. Do the right thing as Spike Lee said. Detroit Metro Area it’s your turn.
