Exploring and Encouraging a Healthy Life Marked with Joy

nno2

Last night marked National Night Out in Savannah, and all over the U.S. (read a little about it here).  The idea is a community-police awareness-raising event, held the first Tuesday of August.  Night Out is meant to increase awareness about police programs in communities, such as crime prevention, drug prevention, town watch, neighborhood watch, and other anti-crime efforts.

I attended the event in my area of Savannah’s historic district.  As a people, a nation, and a community, we MUST get crime under control somehow.  And perhaps these kinds of awareness programs are a step in the right direction.

Crime/violence has no place in our lives.  Let’s work together to get rid of it in our communities, our cities, our movies, our music, our lives.
