Realizing your inner potential

Posted on October 17, 2011 at 1:13 PM
Do you think that if the Inner city youths had community centers with Individuals who are genuinely dedicated to developing them as individual  and believing in them that maybe they would be less crime in the country/community?
 
Potentially also driving these individuals to realising their inner strengths and talent and motivate them to putting these ideas and talent to better use and make the country a better place world wide.

I think that if there were persons who were dedicated to assisting person develop as individuals, then, yes the would be able to grow and contribute to their communities and the wider society in more positive ways. A great idea would be to have workshops that facilitate art. Art is an excellent means of expressing onesself and many of these individuals would be afforded an outlet - a means of expressing themselves.

What one has to understand seriously about these particular communities or what some people would consider as "garrisons" is that they have their own culture and laws that dictate what they represent. These communities have been thrown into impoverishment because of the lack of unity that is been exploited upon the people for many years by individuals that have used the subsistence of the community to its own dirty deeds and benefits. The children today that are born in these communities grow into these torrential difficulties of gang war and murder. Its a continuous cycle that seems to have no end.

What needs to be done is to cure this disease by ridding of this garrison way of life that happens in these communities. That there should be a positive interaction with the communities by teaching civil education to rid the hate that has enveloped in these areas for so long that children have been born and made known that they must defend their turf from an early age because the man next door is their enemy. The 'area leader' mentality must also be eradicated as for years we know that they serve no purpose but to watch people's daughters come to age and sleep with them for the purpose of saying its for the families own protection. A stringent reform for the youth must be done to allow them community centers to go and learn a trade/skill. It is very important that the representative(s) implores that a sound education is one that will pave the way for the betterment of community and society as a whole. A lot of things need to be endorsed, but it takes the work of us as Jamaican's to know there is a problem that we must get involved in to solve. For too many years we have turned our backs and say "it isn't our problem" until one day the problem turns up at out door step. The emphasis should be on us as a nation to demand better for ourselves and for the future youth of Jamaica to come.

Well, I think there are a lot of individuals dedicated to helping Jamaica's youths. Not only those from the inner-city, but elsewhere as well. What should be considered is that crime in Jamaica is as a result of a lot of things. Inner city youths aren't the only ones who are subject to criminal activities. To reduce crime in general, a lot of new policies would have to be implemented. I believe that once Jamaicans are happy, crime can be reduced. And yes, you can have a country of happy people. It will just take us a while to get there.

having a community centre would definitely alleviate the level of crime in the inner city communities. Youths would have less time to idle and woulds feel that some one do care aboutr them and want to see them succeed.

I am only writing to let you understand of the perfect discovery my princess found going through your web page. She figured out several pieces, most notably what it is like to possess an incredible teaching heart to make a number of people completely have an understanding of specific complicated subject areas. You undoubtedly did more than our own expectations. Thanks for giving such productive, trustworthy, edifying and as well as cool thoughts on this topic to Tanya.

I think there are a great deal of people devoted to helping Jamaica's adolescents. Those from the internal city, as well as somewhere else too. What ought to be considered is that wrongdoing in Jamaica is as an aftereffect of a great deal of things. Internal city young people aren't the main ones who are liable to criminal exercises. To diminish wrongdoing when all is said in done, a considerable measure of new arrangements would need to be actualized. I trust that once Jamaicans are glad, wrongdoing can be diminished. What's more, yes, you can have a nation of glad individuals. Thanks!
