It's your neighborbood. You should be able to walk through your neighborhood in safety and with confidence. The good people who live in the neighborhood are the 99%, and the bad element is, at most, the 1%. But even a small percentage of bad actors can put the neighborhood on edge.
Having a business in the neighborhood makes you a part of the neighborhood. Many neighbors become friends, and even though you don't have time to make friends with everyone in the neighborhood, they are still neighbors. Neighbors help neighbors in times of need without thought of compensation, and right now our neighborhood has a need to feel safer and more protected.
The Moy Yat Kung Fu Academy is all about family, and the neighborhood is an extended family. I am proud to be associated with the school, even if it is in a small way. And this guest post is one small way I can help. I hope the ladies in our extended neighborhood will take advantage of this opportunity to learn some basic self-defense. With greater confidence our neighborhoods will grow stronger, as will our sense of community. It is your neighborhood. You are the 99%.
