This is a wonderful picture of the Cancer Survivor's park here in Jacksonville, Florida. This picture doesn't show the parks entire features, but these bridges are small replicas of the many bridges that exist in Jacksonville, Fla. Fortunately, the local cancer survivor's, who have passed their five year anniversary. They can have their name added to the park's memorial wall. I am hoping to have my name added to the wall, since I am a six years survivor.
I will let everyone know the outcome of my request. If you are in the Jacksonville area, stop by and check it out this amazing park, which is dedicated to those who have survived the touch of this devastating disease. One day when they find a cure, we will be able to add many more names to this wall! God bless each family on this wall. May they be honored for their personal journey and courage.

There are many reasons that will cause someone to become violent or willing to commit murder. For instance, he or she could be greedy or angry with the person they have attacked. Currently, religious leaders are sponsoring community programs that give out cash and jobs for guns. Now, many want to give out an education voucher instead, since a diploma can change his or her life.
"There won't be a Blueprint for Prosperity if we're the murder capitol of the world, because no business will come into this city."(Mayor Peyton, 2006)
State officials have been combining their resources, in a team effort to reduce the violence plaguing the city. The daily level of violence has infiltrated local schools and their neighborhoods. Last year, several young children died inside their own home, due to stray bullets. Now, the city official's are bringing attention to Jacksonville's "Save our Streets" program.Getting Involved
Most public officials are getting involved and looking for ways to involve the local residents. These public programs will help local families change their future, while taking guns off the street permanently. Currently, state officials and religious leaders are working together to change the communities. Since, the city needs people to will stand up and fight for the city, which they call their home.
"Public Safety involves partnership. I invite you to partner with your men and women in blue uniforms. When citizens and police officers know and trust one another, they become unified in their approach to crime" (Sheriff John Rutherford, 2006).
This program will take a lot of sacrifice and hard work from every single resident and local official. Every community must stand united and fight for their right to be safe in their own home. Honestly, the police will never be able to stop the violence, which is consuming various communities. In addition, many local residents are afraid of helping the police, due to the fear of retaliation.
According to Rushing (2006), Florida's Governor Jeb Bush believes that the FBI statistics can be misleading. The city's Mayor believes the economy will suffer, due to the loss of new businesses andresidents. However, the city's officials agree that mentoring and education is the key to making Jacksonville safe again. Furthermore, some officials think that his office is not doing enough to help combat crime.
The city is urging all local citizens, to stand up and stop tolerating the violence in their neighborhood. Nevertheless, many leaders and officials are arguing that education is the key to stopping this growing epidemic. These public programs will help take guns off the street permanently, while changing the River City's future. Therefore, Jacksonville's struggle with violence can finally end.References:
