Join the "too much class to show my a**" Movement! (Pass Along)
In the month of June Our Youth Organization is trying something "Out The Box" It is called " Too much class to show my a** month" This is in place to grab the attention of the youth and to educate them about the ideas and images they take in and how these things affect their way of thinking.
There is a saying, "You are what you eat." This opportunity has to do with the food our young ladies take in with their eyes and ears. The images our young ladies take in daily affects their view on life, themselves, and influences the way they act. The images on television and music videos are graphic, sexual, and violent and our young ladies unfortunately are too. During the " I have too much class to show my a** month I am asking that we do the following things highlighted below and I'm also asking that we cut off our televisions, music, cellphones, computers, all electronic devices for one hour a day. During that hour, I'm asking parents to talk to their children, youth to plan their future, parents to help with your children's homework,and youth to read a book, work and develop their art, meditate, pray, or do something to better your community. We want you to document your hour of disconnect and email it to us so that we can share it with the world! We also want to send a message to the Entertainment Executives to clean up their acts and clean up what they are showing our youth and society. Our Organization wants our youth to disconnect from negative and connect with themselves, imagination, and possibility! We want them to GET OUT THE BOX!
"To Get Out The Box, we must disconnect!"
