What Would Dijore Harris Say to President Obama If He Could Speak With Him?

            If I had 15 minutes with President Barack Obama I think I would chat with him about homelessness in America. I think the homeless should have a place to stay because they need to get off the streets. They can be placed in donated apartment buildings. They can do volunteer works such as cleaning up the city’s streets and parks until they can find jobs and began to slowly take care of themselves. This would keep them in safe living conditions. They would not have to ask anybody for money on the streets because they would get small amount of money in the form of stipend from the city.  Also, I would ask President Obama if we could get the money by doing charity events because I know the City do not have a lot of money to give away. I would explain to him the homeless should have a second chance too. I would ask him if everything goes well in one state can we do the same for all the states.

What Social Problem Would Dijore Harris Try to Solve If He Had $1 Million?

     

If I were given $1 million dollars to combat any problem in the world it would be to give money away to people who have HIV/AIDS. I would give at least $300 thousand to urban hospitals in Brooklyn, NY so they can treat HIV infected babies and adults. Another $300 thousand would go to research to find a cure. I would try to see people feel better by spending some money on kids camps for HIV/AIDS and classes for adults. Some of the money would go to doctors too because if we have a lot of doctors we would have a lot of events such as health fairs where people would get tested. By doing this some people would be saved and we can spread the word. Less people would be dying in my community and all over the world.

Which Leader Inspires Dijore Harris the most?

The person I really look up to is my good friend Marc Brooks.  Marc is an educated man. He works for the Salvation Army in Brownsville, Brooklyn. He is an educator and program director. What makes me look up to him is his kindness, how smart he is, his love for others and the fact that he’s like a big brother to me. He sometimes teaches me real life things, like cooking, and how to do my own laundry and being good in school. He always tells me to listen to my mom and respect her. He talks to me when I have an attitude and he helps me with my favorite sport basketball. I never knew about steel band until Marc showed me. Now, I am passed the beginner stage and lead the line on special program day. Sometimes he can get highly upset with the kids, but he is still a good man who cares. Marc and I have had some good times and I wish we could have more.

This Local Issue Needs Attention by Dijore Harris

A local issue in my community that I care the most about is littering. Almost everybody I know litters. Every time I see one of my friends litter I politely ask them to pick up their mess. It turns me off to see people litter, because they make the streets dirty and stick. If everybody would practice putting their garbage in the trash cans, then the streets would be a cleaner place. Also, there would not be so many rats and mice and sewer problems. So what I think needs to be done is for us to gather as a group of all ages to help clean up tidy our community. Then if we can, we would try to get other kids in other communities to help out.

What’s on Dijore’s mind today?

My free blog is about how people love to litter. I think it’s a shame for people to throw candy wrappers, food, sunflower seeds, soda cans and other waste on the ground instead of throwing it in the garbage. People should care about keeping where they environment clean. The air would be cleaner, and the streets would look a lot better. Also we wouldn’t have to worry so much about rats, and roaches running around. People should keep the streets clean just as they want a clean house.  If the police catch them they should make them pick it up or give them a ticket.  Then people would be more careful about throwing trash on the ground.

Why So Many Americans Are Suffering Economically Today – Dijore’s Opinion

So many people in our country are suffering because the economy is bad.  Others because they spend their money on things they don’t need. People should think about their needs rather than their wants mostly because a lot of people are out of work and cannot pay their bills or feed their children.

The government needs to help by lowering taxes, the cost for transportation, prices on food, electric bills, healthcare and especially rent, at least until the economy improves. The government can also start new programs to help people. Like, give stores money to lower their prices on merchandise.

Young People’s Role Model – Dijore’s Idea



I think kids should look up to people that are more educated. The reason I say this is because kids nowadays only look up to Rappers and Ball Players. Majority of the rap industry have not even made it out of High School. Many of them are not educated and in return only use slang words. Words that do not show education and that are disrespectful. As children we should be working harder to get our education and learn better proper English. If we only look up to rappers and ball players then we would not be learning as much as we could. Some ball players go to college, like Kobe Bryant. He can speak other languages and he’s smart. He has a college education, and I look up to him. But there are other ball players who only play ball for the money and fame. They do not have college degrees. Kids should stay in school and learn more ways to better themselves. That’s why I said kids should look up to people who are educated as role model.
