Wrapping Up 2012!

I’ve been meaning to blog about this for sometime now…. Being that its close to the end of 2012, I couldn’t have chosen a better moment than 7:30 in the a.m. on a rainy monday morning.
First of all, as a member of the South L.A. community, I’d like to thank SAJE for their time and resources in assembling the people that helped these things come to pass.
First, the-home-page.net has given our community an opportunity to amplify their voices and concerns, which lots of times are drowned out by simple negligence. You get to see, hear and read first hand accounts of how some of our neighbors’ are living. And with a focus on slum-housing conditions, we can address and transform these hazardous environments. So thank you SAJE, may you all find health and happiness in all your socks this Christmas 😀
There were two other BIG developments in our community. One is The Lorenzo Project, and the the other is the USC Expansion. ( I’ll go into more specifics on these two developments in upcoming blogs.) The significance of these two projects is that they are paving the way for unprecedented partnerships between land-developers and communities. I personally believe this will have time-proven positive effects that we aren’t even aware of yet. But for now, there is one thing that you can walk away with here that is for certain: PEOPLE ARE MORE IMPORTANT AND VALUABLE THAN PROPERTY.

Cheers y’all!

Wanna Take A Ride?

At a time when gas prices everywhere are through the roof, CicLAvia is sending out the perfect message. Last Sunday Los Angeles held its 5th installment of fun, sun and bike riding for all to enjoy. How great is it to merge together good times and health? And to be able to wizz through the streets of downtown and South L.A. without the threat of impatient motorists eager to cut you off, well thats just icing on the cake. Lets help this movement grow y’all. Your heart will thank you for it 😉
