I wanted to help raise awareness to domestic violence
Charleston, SC (PRWEB) January 06, 2015
On January 5, 2015, My Positive Perspective host Jason Deierlein was joined by Butch Kennedy. Kennedy has a huge desire to lower crime rates and speak out against domestic violence. When he appeared on a recent My Positive Perspective broadcast Deierlein asked Kennedy, “Could you talk about this group that you helped bring to the Charleston area?” Kennedy replies, “The organization is called Project Unity USA. It was founded in 2006, and we brought it here because at the time, North Charleston was the seventh most dangerous city in the nation.” Kennedy continues, “When I heard that, I was stunned and wanted to do something to help.”
Deierlein then asks Kennedy, “Can you tell me more about the group?” Kennedy answers, “We partner with local law enforcement, the clergy, businesses, community leaders and the media to reduce crime.” Deierlein then asks, “Does the group provide help for victims of domestic violence?” Kennedy replies, “Yes, we actually have an outreach coordinator and we offer screenings to potential victims.”
Deierlein then asks Kennedy, “How can people contact you?” Kennedy answers, “They can visit http://projectunityusa.com/ ”
My Positive Perspective is a media outlet believing that improvement in our community will be best achieved by focusing on the good things happening in our world today. Having survived a near fatal car accident as a youth, a shift of perception forced one to have a mentality of always concentrating on the brighter sides of things. This was true, and in my book, Return From a Comatose Mind, this belief was put to the test. Appreciation for life was the biggest thing one took away from my brush with death, and it is because of that gives me such a huge desire to be helpful to many. My Positive Perspective is a way of overcoming challenges through positive thinking.
