  • Dear Avon Ave: A Letter to the Block

    Avon Ave, Newark, New Jersey. Google Maps Dear Avon Ave, Wow, I never thought I would be writing to you, a damn “avenue”. You had me for a minute, shit, you had me my whole life. You controlled my every thought, every word, and my every action. I never cheated on you because you was main attraction. I learned a lot from you. I pray the new breed looks at my life and sees what not to do. You taught me how to load a gun, coming off the porch from playing man-hunt. I rep your name hard... READ MORE

  • History in the Making

    What matters in life? KEEPING GOD FIRST! In today’s age it’s easy to complain about what we believe to be the injustices of life. You know those things that contradict or challenge our believed rights to comfort and happiness. We then find ourselves getting even more bitter when we look at the past and try to evaluate and understand the actions of those that lived in those times. Often we try to justify our lack of responsibility by blaming the experience of our ancestors and... READ MORE

  • The Philosophy of Life

    God always has something for you. There is a key for every door. An answer for every problem. There is light for every shadow. There is relief for every sorrow. And a plan for every tomorrow.

Plant seeds for tomorrow. Live a life worth living. The philosophy of life is to make the most of it. Enjoy the happy moments.... READ MORE

  • Life Is Full of Obstacles!

    Webster’s Dictionary defines obstacles as “something that stands in the way or opposes.” Throughout our existence in this world we will always be faced with various obstacles, trials, and tribulations. If they’re not dealt with properly, they could lead to a state of discouragement, or settling for less, or even giving up. In my opinion, it’s not the obstacle that’s the problem. It’s more about how we deal with the problem and whatever else is standing... READ MORE

  • Leadership is Often Misunderstood

    Where are our leaders? Why are we not leading our people toward more positive outcomes in life? Understanding the direction our generation is heading, someone must step in and begin to lead toward a brighter future. Right now our future, the kids, are being led by drugs, drug dealers, gangs, rappers, and gangster movies; all of which are leading them to early graves or incarceration. We are losing! We are losing our grip on reality. At this rate, all we have is a gloomy future. Our kids are... READ MORE

  • A World Inside A World

    Life is an amazing journey we all are experiencing. The circumstances and situations that we face ultimately determine the path we take. The one beautiful thing I love about life is the ability to learn from the mistakes we’ve made. “A smart man learns from his mistakes, but a wise man learns from the mistakes of others.” This is a thinking man’s world. In order to accomplish goals, dreams, or whatever you set your mind to, the key element is to think it through.... READ MORE

  • Cedric Brown

    Thank you for the opportunity to be apart of Live from Lockdown. I pray my words of encouragement along with my story are helpful to the youth as well as individuals my age seeking change. My story isn’t any different from the many other you may have read. I grew up in Newark, New Jersey. My father died when I was three-years-old and my mother was abusing drugs so the amount of love I was looking for wasn’t there. At the age of nine I went searching for that love and found it in the... READ MORE
