The Search and Thanks are Ongoing
The tradition of annual Platinum PIA Celebrations ended around two years ago, but much has happened over the last couple of years. The quest to make a difference by finding those who themselves make a difference, has not stopped.
The world we live in now with COVID, inflation and here in New York City, violence, has tested all of us in one way or another. A new mayor in office came as a beacon of hope for many.
The reasoning was that because he had once been a police officer himself, that he brought to the table important knowledge and experience, and could stop or diminish the amount of unnecessary blood shed that occurs in our wonderful city.
A New Reality?
Although the mayor has not been in office long, some of those who voted for him are losing the faith. This is because since he took on his responsibilities, violence has actually gone up.
Thanks from All of Us
Our thanks go out to those who are actively working toward ending violence here in Manhattan and beyond. You are indeed making a difference!
