Sometimes in politics it’s easy to become cynical. To be spoon fed the dire predictions about youth, conflict in society, community breakdown and despite often having personal experience to the contrary, even the hardest of skins can be pierced by this gloomy outlook on our society.
Then something comes along and makes you think that not all’s bad. There’s a great deal of work going on out there by ordinary people who just want to make their communities better. That all young people aren’t druggie alcoholic harbingers of anti-social behaviour and vandalism.
Anyway, this little piece was brought to my attention and for those suffering from the constant pounding of doom and gloom from the Daily Mail et al, this can really lift the spirits. Especially for myself as it come from somewhere quite local, Dudley. Enjoy.
