The Opening

I had a chance to watch and listen to the opening of the ESPY awards show last night. Instead of a comedic opening it was very serious and moving.  Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, and Dewayne Wade taling about gun violence and police shooting plus making changes for the better.   They have financial clout to make changes in their communities for the better.   I feel that education and ending economical inequality could be a catalyst for change in the inter-cities.    It will take more than hash-tags and protests to make things better.   It has to take reinvesting in their communities and creating jobs.   It has to take everyone working together to make things better.
