Every action begins with a vision. Desires begin with an introduction to dream and inquire all possibilities. Dreams turn into motivation for achievement. Children are enlightened with dreams. They are all about action, doing, going, seeing, touching, and experiencing. Their minds take in everything around them and yes, they soak these things up like sponges.
The “Don’t Kill My Chance” slogan is intended for all to embrace life and think twice about what could be taken away when the trigger is pulled out of rage, when anger and selfishness overrides morale and life-changing situations occur. It is imperative for all to see and understand that our future leaders and creative minds are being wiped of chance due to senseless violence and poor living conditions. If we are no longer fighting for ourselves, the fight for children has got to continue on. We have to work to save the children and expose them to the fruits of life.
Created by A.J. Linton and Powered by Ashley ‘Snow’ Harris and LaToya ‘Toi Talese’ Cross, the Don’t Kill My Chance Campaign visually emphasizes the pains of the city as it relates to senseless violence and the loss of youth. Our hope with this movement is to direct and focus the social lens on the endurance of life and allowing children an equal opportunity and chance to grow up and live the life of their dreams and desires.
Join us in our movement to raise peace and opportunity. Hear No Evil. See No Evil.
