Its a rough world out there…….


Two stabbings in as many days in good old New Zealand. A timely reminder that it is a tough world out there. A sad indicator of what our society has become when our youngsters are being stabbed to death on a regular basis. I cant help but wonder if the victims of these attacks saw the warning signs and chose to ignore them or they were ignorant to them.

We only need to think why the Police have been issued with stab proof vests in recent years…clearly an indicator that things have changed…what is also disturbing is that the Police recovered a number of weapons from the scene of the recent stabbing in Pakuranga…clear evidence that our youth are carrying and obviously have the intent to use.

I really encourage that if you are confronted on the street that the safest option is to escape and get out of it..do not under estimate what is out there and who is prepared to take a life to prove a point…be careful and stay safe. My sincere condolances to all families affected by this latest tragedy.

Teenagers – our vulnerable group


Hi all,

I trust the natural events around the country of late have not been playing too much on your mind. My heartfelt condolences to those that have been directly affected.

To give you a bit of an update: I am currently in discussions with Margarita Politas of ELAN STLYE regarding a possible educational intiative for our teens.

Margarita is a stylist who offers a two day workshop for teenagers…both male and female…in the areas of stlye and confidence building. Collectively we are anticipating including Personal Safety, Self Defence and possibly
Methamphetamine awareness training.

It will be an exciting venture working with our teens not only improving their confidence but also encouraging them to be more aware when it comes to their safety.

I will keep you advised of progress and further details once finalised.

Regards

Tony
