What It Do With the LUE: Our City, San Bernardino

What it do with the LUE! Our city is what it Do. The Dark Clouds! Just as a thunderstorm brings forth clouds filled with precipitation which brings forth rain, hail, sleet, and snow, our city is covered with clouds bringing forth HATE, PAIN, VIOLENCE, and MURDER. In the words of legendary R&B singer and song writer Marvin Gaye, “What’s Going On and Mercy Mercy Me”?    “What’s going on in the Inland Empire, what’s going on in San Bernardino, what’s going on in the homes and the schools?”

Was Marvin Gaye a modern day prophet during his time or Nah? Our city has suffered the loss of several lives due to violence. There used to be a time when a good old fashioned one-on-one fist fight would do. Those days are long gone. We’re living in an era where the use of weapons and firearms seem to be the answer. We’re living in an era where it’s nothing to take a person’s life and not blink twice. So much blood is being splattered on the very streets our children walk up and down every day. The young are dying right before our very eyes.

Is this Biblical? Is this the handwriting on the wall? Our ancestors endured much so we can have more. When I say more, I mean more opportunities to a bright future. Please don’t tell me their struggle was in vain. What will it take for us to unite and fight for our future generation to come. I know I’m not alone when I say, “Peace Be still”. Just as Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream, so do I.

I dream that someday, and someday soon, we can see ourselves in each other. That we can walk hand in hand with our own. We need the leaders and when I say leaders, I’m not speaking to those sitting in a suit behind a desk. I’m referring to those street leaders. The ones that really have the influence on the streets, the ones our sons and daughters emulate. We need those individuals to come to the table and HELP HEAL THE LAND.

This Saturday a community forum is being held to understand what’s happening. This forum is a platform for the community to cry out. Please come out to S.O.S., State of San Bernardino. The event is hosted by “United Nations of Consciousness” and sponsored by several other community entities. Let your voice be known! This is ya’ girl LUE and our town is what it do!

Music Changing Lives Celebrates 17 Years of Giving Youth Hope in Music, Arts

Students and Staff at MCL

REDLANDS, CA- On  Friday, April 10, Music Changing Lives will host their “Changing Lives Dinner Celebration,” a festive dinner that will help raise funds to benefit music and art enrichment programs for at-risk youth in our community.

The event will be filled with delicious food, music, silent auctions, and entertainment. When members RSVP for the dinner, they will receive a personalized invitation with a puzzle piece.  The puzzle piece carries a symbolic meaning, as each piece signifies a person and their contribution to keep music and art alive and accessible to the children and youth in our community.  At the end of the night, all attendees will put their pieces together to form the Music Changing Lives puzzle. This will be a symbolic moment and represents how important each contribution truly is to the MCL program.
