Bronx Day to Day
I have gone to the Bronx often as a day trip, doing things along the lines of visiting The Bronx Zoo. I have spent the night in the Bronx while staying at a friend’s place. I also have had the experience of doing a community project over a period of several months in one of the most challenged areas of the Bronx. Though, doing all this does not mean that much compared to what the day to day for a person living full time in the Bronx goes through.
Walt Disney’s Saying
Quotes from people like Walt Disney may not be of interest to some Bronx residents, though the message of it could be helpful. Thanks to DIYdigi we got this quote:
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” -Walt Disney
Anger is Justified
Some might find the Mr. Disney quote bringing up anger. And it is understandably so. Some Bronx residents have never received the tools and role models to assist them in taking a stab at “success,” whatever that word implies. Success means different things to different people. There are many success stories in the Bronx ranging from an abundance of celebrities who were born in the Bronx, to folks who live there helping each other out. Community activism is something that is very powerfully occurring in in this one of five boroughs. And to them, as well as all Bronx residents, we applaud you for your great work!
