"A Change Is Gonna Come"..........Its about time we focus on the future!

"Mayor Bloomberg, Department of Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, and Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter invite New Yorkers from across the five boroughs to take their fun to the streets on three Saturdays this month during Summer Streets. For the next three Saturdays, August 9th, 16th and 23rd, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., vehicle traffic will be replaced along seven miles of City streets by New Yorkers and visitors taking leisurely strolls, going for a bike ride or taking part in organized activities such as aikido, salsa dancing, tai-chi, running, rollerblading and hopscotch.

I love when NYers put their heads together for the betterment of our beautiful City. I remember a time before the PS3 or the XBox 360 when all we had was a Nintendo (or for the rich kids, Super Nintendo)...which we only played during rainy days.....Joy was sought out on the court, blacktop, playgrounds....relay races and manhunt on the block.....this was before the world became insecure....before obescity became a disease and waaaaay before myspace and facebook.....we weren't glued to our seats then.....this is why this makes me so happy....I'll see you there!
