Through music and sound I plan on eracing the hate hate everywhere my music is heard. Through positive music we can change the world.
My name is Tevin Alston Negative energy is something that’s a very powerful thing. A lot of people have a very hard time overcoming it sometimes, but it’s being around the positivity that’s how to get rid of those negative vibes. In Middle school, I personally went through a point in my life where I actually helped my father overcome his alcoholism. Now, we all know how dealing with a family member can be, especially someone so close to you suffering from something so serious . My father used to leave for weeks at a time. As a son, when your father doesn’t come home for weeks, it really makes you wonder, and that negative energy started rubbing off on me and the rest of my family. It’s like the expression “if there’s one bad Apple in the bunch eventually all the apples are gonna get spoiled”; that’s exactly what happened. Things were tough, bills weren’t getting paid, he was missing special events my sister and me were apart of, but the worst was when people asked where he was and the response was ‘I don’t Know.’ So, my family and I finally sat down with him and told him that he needed to go to rehab to get better. Thankfully, he did, but he couldn’t do it alone. He needed the love and positivity from us and we were there with him every step of the way. It couldn’t have been without the positivity and love from us. People can’t do things alone in life, especially overcoming something like alcoholism, drug abuse, depression etc. My father has been sober for 8 years now and is a great man and role model for me, everybody overcomes adversity, but with Love and positivity overcoming that negative energy won’t be possible.
My name is Lyndon Gray. I was very excited to learn about Reggie Dee’s walk for peace and unity. I met Reggie in late 2014, and like myself, he is a voice for his community. He told me the goal for the walk he would make in February: people need to come together. First, recognize that racism exists, and second, discuss the solutions to coexistence.
Everyone placed on this earth has been given a different purpose. We did not choose the circumstances that we are born into, our race, nor the color of our skin. So, we must not judge before we understand. It’s easiest for me to apply this by ASKING QUESTIONS. Traveling the world or traveling down the street, people are people. Don’t fear what you don’t know, but seek knowledge. Appreciate what you are and what you have to share. An open mind is a result of a positive attitude. If we can get more of that positivity, we’ll be making some distance in a walk against racism and beginning a walk for peace.
THANKS AGAIN REGGIE DEE!!!! #WALKWITHMEAGAINSTRACISM #POWERTWOTHEPEACEFUL
