Are you really tired of hearing about neighborhood murder; kidnappings; abductions; missing and exploited children; domestic violence; and under educated high school seniors?
When you have had enough and really what to minister, help, volunteer and change, that’s the time to come together as a community. We really are one community whether we like it or not.
Community is you and I having ongoing conversations to solve our problems. Now you may say to yourself, “I don’t have any problems. It doesn’t affect me. I’m good.” Well I would say to you that an injury to one is a injury to us all. Evil does not discriminate. Let’s stop feeling helpless. If we meet, talk and come up with a strategy, than we will transform our community.
WE MUST COME TOGETHER AND SPEAK WITH ONE VOICE.
I challenge you to become a village keeper.
A village keeper is a neighborhood adult, at least 18 years old, who wants a safe neighborhood to live and raise their children. Let’s start a real honest online discussion about how to make our neighborhood, community and Washington, DC better. Only when you and I accept responsibility for the village (household, neighborhood and community), can we defeat the enemies of the village.
Together, we must erase evil from our households, neighborhoods and community. We have got to identify who among us is robbing, killing and destroying our people. We got to get them help before they harm another child, youth, young adult and senior citizen. We must stop wayward, dangerous, outlaw, malefactor and criminal minded people to ruin our community.
We must turn our frazzles, fears and frustrations into tangible solutions.
You and I have the power to catch and save our community. We can catch and save one person at a time. We must walk the streets, control the corners, ask every head of the household to be alert, knock on every door, volunteer at every school, help every student, support every parent, recruit every family member to band together to help each other.
Elected officials, ie, the Mayor, Councilmember and the Metropolitan Police Department can be everywhere in the community. We see and know, who, what, when, where and how. We got to find courage to expose evil doers.
ELECTED OFFICIALS, POLICE AND LAWS SUPPORT US.
#IAMTHEVILLAGE MUST TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE VILLAGE.
You and I, must take responsibility for our children, youth, young adults and seniors. It’s time for frustrated citizens of the village to stand up and fight back everything and everyone, seen and unseen, that seek to destroy the village.
The Apostle Paul said, “We are not fighting against flesh and blood, but against unknown and unseen forces, adversaries, rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:1-24)
Jesus said, “The thief comes to STEAL (abduct / kidnap), to KILL (murder / homicide) and lastly to DESTROY.” (utterly derange the mind, soul and spirit) But I have come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:10)
We are all under attack and no household or family is safe. Please sign the pledge to become a village keeper. Together, we can overcome evil, crime and premature deaths. Sign up today!
