Welcome! I hope to capture your attention for the allotted time while informing you along the way. I will try my best to respond and react to my articles or pictures with my utmost respect and knowledge. I have always been under the impression that blogs are meant to be creative and enlightening. Upon receiving this assignment, I hesitated to begin blogging due to my lack of “blogging experience�.

Throughout the nest few days, I will be discussing and analyzing inner-city violence, with a main focus on teenage violence. I hope to investigate the reasons for initiating violent encounters as well as the consequences of one’s poor decisions.

Initially, I did not know what I was going to blog about but after much thought, I chose to express my feelings on a topic that has been present my entire life. I was born and raised in Chicago, yes, the actual city of Chicago, as opposed to the suburbs where inhabitants deem it acceptable to say they are from the Chicago. Violence is a prominent issue in my neighborhood and I want to be able to understand it rather than judge it. The only way to accomplish this is through careful analysis and creative thinking, which can all be expressed via this blog. Enjoy!
