WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT YOUTH VIOLENCE TODAY AND HOW DOES IT AFFECTS YOU
Hezekiah Davies (Thursday, 12 July 2012 17:21)
Youth violence, is unfortunately a scenario that has become repeatedly frequent in our society, especially within core cities of dense populations in north america. I myself was a victim of youth
violence. Being stabbed, inches away from the heart gave me a totally different perspective on violence, as it hit so close to home. Youth violence in my opinion can be attributed to negative images
which are instilled into the psyche of young individuals through mediums such as music. In order to combat this issue, we as a community must consciously deglorify violence that is already promoted
through popular artists, and allow for the understanding and realization of self-worth to take place within the community.
