God’s creations; so we are art in human form. We have talents to offer the world. Skills that can build and drive business. Strengths that can bear children and raise them. Chances to to make choices. Right Wrongs. We are given life; a privilege, yet too many are taken advantage of this gift. Too many murders. Too much innocence dissolving and taken away prematurely.
How many more tears need to shed? How many more mothers need to become child-less, fathers child-less? How many more baby burials does society need to suffer through because of the shooter’s selfishness, ignorance and rage? Premature deaths and broken families – this is our news everyday.
The art of life is becoming filled with dark tints and shades of red. Growing poverty and hunger. Why are the chances to thrive in life hard to see? Why are they mountains, twists, and turns away instead of accessible just as a gun or drugs? Why is the struggle for success harder than it is to purchase a gun and take life? Let’s think about this. Yes, we have to put in work, work, work, to retrieve the award, but where are the systems of genuine help before taking extreme measures?
We’re trying to save lives and raise children in a society where violence is not there only existence. Give children the chance and opportunity to plan and work for their dreams. Let them see that it is possible regardless of circumstance. Wipe out evil.
DON’T KILL MY CHANCE, YOUR CHANCE, OUR CHANCE , THEIR CHANCE.
CREATE ART. DON’T DESTROY IT.
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.
