When Are You Going To Grow Up Or Do You Need To?

When Are You Going To Grow Up Or Do You Need To?
By Nick Ashton, Founder, Tracometry People

We are all childlike and have these idiosyncrasies that annoy others, fail us and 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.

The photograph above was taken in 1957, by my late father.  My brother Nigel taking that long stare at his taller brother.  The humor of my father made him an awarding winning photographer.

Some things are no laughing matter and no matter how much humor you place upon a situation, it really should be bringing 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.

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 that is the concern us.

What about the rest of us?  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, I have a job and I keep myself to myself, Okay?

Even if you are bringing in an income today, most are living from 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, place and create 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 can make that difference in a few short weeks when residents, code enforcement, community police all come together in one cohesive group to make this happen.  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.

So shall we all grow up together and make the change?

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…
