Rest In Peace Harry
Imagine stepping out your house and being not only robbed of your phone, but stabbed after for running 😡
Imagine coming out on new year's eve to celebrate the start of a new year, but never being able to see in the year, as you've been stabbed to death 😡
When reading these things I think to myself yeah we should punish their parents first let them know pain. Though working in the field I understand that often the young people doing the stabbing are in care and often coming from crazy backgrounds. Not always but very often.
I was talking with a friend about the road life today, and we both was of the conclusion it's always been dead. As friends turn to enemies, family turns to enemies, friends kill friends, family kills family. And the joke thing is that being killed isn't the biggest thing as many on the roads lose their minds to mental illness.
Have you ever talked with a loved one who has lost their mind? It's one of the most emotionally turbulent thing you can ever experience.
Often when I'm working with these kids who carry knifes etc often I start with building their self worth, as I'm telling you, you talk with them and able to get past the fake confidence you see an extreme lack of self confidence. Building their confidence and belief in their selves I have found opens them up to new conversations, new ways of thinking and new ways of doing things. I'm not saying way is perfect but I can say I and red light busking have had real success with this. But I also know that for many not in the field this is not easy.
So today a thought come to me, where I thought of Guerrilla warfare , Guerrilla marketing and how this can be used to turn perceptions. If a constant barrage is thrown at young people, that to the glamour of the street life shows the other side of,.death, loneliness, betrayal, lost of mind, craziness, and sometimes homelessness would this over time help change perspective? And would this be something that everyone can take part in?
I know that 99.9% of young people are getting on well and not into it, but maybe things like this could help reach the 0.01% in a way that all parts of the community can help with.
🤷🏾♂️ I don't know just my thoughts
