So, we've been bombarded by the recent events in the news that depict nothing but violence in a country that is supposed to be built upon freedom, trust and love for your neighbor. We have seen the crimes against humanity in our own backyards for far too many years. Every news station. radio station and internet/mobile feed parade police brutality, black on black crime, sadistic familial murders, racial crimes and the list goes on -- to a point that we are desensitized. We are not able to tell the difference from the oppressed and the oppressor in some cases. We have lost sight of who the true victims are with all of this negativity: our future leaders.
I often ask myself who is brave enough to stand against the media giants, the religious knaves and corporate jesters to spread the news about those doing good by spreading positive messages throughout our immediate communities? Then I ask who is brave enough to witness to the world that there is a rise in positive people nurturing positive values into our future leaders of the world.
Well, along with #WeGiveBecauseWeCare #365Days of SCP, there are others in the NYC community that have given back tremendously out of pure love. H2O Basketball and Ballin4Peace debuted their Celebrity Basketball game in January with a star studded basketball game at Baruch College. This very same team got together agian to serve the community with ROAD2PEACE at Bowlmor located at Pier 60 of Chelsea Piers in NYC. The purpose of this event was to raise funds for the future efforts of H2O Basketball and Ballin4Peace. The funds raised will support their programs that service inner city youth via sports and recreation.
Many friends of the business came out to support the ROAD2PEACE. Those in attendance include The Black Ink Crew, Marc J. Jefferies, Shagari Alleyne, Tylik Hill of Vocab Entertainment, D.J. Desim, D.J. Don Demarco and many more. They all joined in with friendly competition on the score boards.
The most amazing part of the night was: we all came together out of love for the peace movement in NYC. We all want to end the generational crimes of one to another. We had fun dancing and bowling and raised funds in the meantime! That was nothing but a WIN....even when the losers talked smack about underground midgets tilting the the floors of the lanes! And lets not forget about the BK and The Bronx competition that resulted in two muscle bound males doing push ups until the one tapped out. By the way, the dude from The Bronx won that too!
Take a look at the photos below and we look forward to seeing you at the next event!
