Don’t Kill My Chance … Life is Beauty’s Canvas


Generated Chaos.
What this could be. Herein lies detriments; past times of catastrophe.
Controversy stirs awakening ill-feelings, awakening loss, awakening further wants.
Hearts buried in grief – eyes drowned in rain – pouring hurricanes.
Survival? Still working to figure that out. An exploratory movement.
Stillness exist in memorabilia – smiles lingering in our hearts.
Kisses of bliss – imprints of what was, that is, was before the thunder.
Rummaging Hurricane …

The ideal of life is to embrace its beauty, explore its land, and find your place of happy.  It’s an artists’ canvas. Perception is displayed in works of art provoking dialogue. Young lives becoming grown ones, tapping into their destiny’s. Only, in this day, so few are granted their opportunity of chance and prosperity. We’re facing too many emotional hurricanes. There’s too much premature loss.  We are fighting to save the youth. We are fighting for their chance and endurance of life.

LIFE is beauty’s canvas.  Children and youth bring that energized synergy.

Let them Live. Don’t Destroy Beauty. Don’t Destroy Life.

Hear No Evil. See No Evil. Raise Peace and Opportunity.




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.
