When Are You Going To Grow Up Or Do You Need To?
By Nick Ashton, Founder, CEO, Tracometry.
We are all childlike and have these idiosyncrasies that annoy others, totally fail ourselves and they just will not go away. It is the likes of Jerry Lewis, Dick Van Dyke and Ricky Grevais who in front of our eyes have stayed in their childhood years and make us laugh and even be amused with ourselves. It comes from within and without it, well...
Some things are no laughing matter and no matter how much humor you place upon a situation, it really should be bringing "real" tears to your eyes. Life itself, the way cities, communities and families are being dragged down hill at break bent speed and the braking system is broken and overheating, is causing structural decline of the family, neigborhoods and businesses.
Those that are lucky enough to be employed have the same routine, day in and day out. Rise, dress, go to work, come home, fix dinner, sleep and then repeated at least 5 days a week. Many never stick their nose outside their home and speak to their neighbor or even see what surrounds them.
Communities have changed and sitting on the porch seeing your neighbors walk by is long past. I supposed it is when we moved the social porch to the backyard and closed our eyes, ears and concerns of what went on in the front of our homes. Turning that blind eye is now being paid for and will get even worse!
What about the rest? What about those that are unemployed? What is their day like? I know questions and more questions and you just don’t want to know! It is not my concern, you say, I have a job and I keep myself to myself, Okay?
Even if you are bringing in a paycheck, today most are living from that paycheck to paycheck, making ends meet and only just. Shopping has become a burden, finding the bargains, food to feed the family at prices you can afford. Think what the other half, the unemployed are doing.
It is time to bring back your community, placing and creating respect and trust into the streets. Look, we have built a brick wall of shame over the decades and it has just kept getting thicker and higher, the wall of disrespect must be torn down. No one likes change, this change is a positive change and must be enacted now!
The Pied Piper Project is a proven catalyst that makes that difference in a few short months when residents, landlords/tenants, code enforcement, community police all come together in one cohesive group to make this happen.
Cleaning up, from the abundance of stray animals, colleting them, fixing them and placing back into the community. Removing the broken down abandoned vehicles, stopping the street level drug supermarket buyers and dealers. Those with criminal tendancies are told to sing to the comunnity tune or go find another stage for their criminal ways. Once it is in place the maintenance is simplistic. This is not like a bad diet, we will shed the problems and remove them for good. Residents are happy and local business thrives once again.
The Pied Piper Project is a true and fruitful change that brings back the smiles and happiness of our childhood.
Make that change, make it now!
WE are in the NOW and KEEP YOU; in the KNOW…
