Where’s the Love for Queen City

August 13, 2016

THIS IS THE ROVING REPORTER IN THE FIRST BLOG IN SUPPORT OF THE QUEEN CITY (Q.C.) CIVIC LEAGUE. SOME THINGS MAY BE STATED THAT ONE CAN AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH, BUT NEED TO BE PUT FORTH IN COMMMORATION OF A HISTORIC MOMENT IN THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE OF Q.C.. THIS IS NOT A HISTORY LESSON, BUT, OPINION, THOUGHTS, AND REFLECTIONS OF A LONG ESTABLISHED COMMUNITY THAT HAS GROWN OVER THE YEARS. BEAR WITH ME AND LET’S GO FOR IT…..

      Q.C., IS A SMALL COMMUNITY THAT LIES ON THE LINE BETWEEN CHESAPEAKE AND VIRIGNIA BEACH. IT CONSISTS OF WELL ESTABLISHED FAMILIES THAT HAVE WATCHED THEIR SONS’ AND DAUGHTERS’ GROW, LEAVE, AND BUILD THEIR OWN FAMILIES, BUT YET, STILL, COME BACK TO TOUCH THE ROOTS THAT WERE IMPLANTED IN THEIR YOUTH. IN OTHER WORDS, THEY COME BACK HOME TO TOUCH WHAT MADE THEM WHO THEY ARE. BE IT FOR A WEEK OR A FEW DAYS, THEY STILL COME BACK. HOME IS NEVER THE SAME WHEN YOU’RE GONE FOR A WHILE, BUT HOME IS STILL HOME.

      OVER TIME, Q.C. HAS EVOLVED WITH ROAD PAVING, BUSINESSES ON THE OUTSKIRTS, NEW FAMILIES MOVING IN AND EITHER BUYING OR RENTING HOMES. THE QUESTION COMES TO MIND……WHY? THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE…..PEOPLE SEE WHAT IS THERE AND ARE NOT AFRAID TO COME IN AND JOIN THE Q.C. FAMILY. IN REGARD TO THE OF GROWTH Q.C. ,  IT HAS EXPERIENCED ITS SHARE OF PROBLEMS THAT COME WITH EXPANSION. THERE’S A CRIME ELEMENT, TOO MUCH INCURSION FROM BUSINESS, LACK OF CITY SUPPORT, (BOTH CHESAPEAKE AND VIRGINIA BEACH) FOR BETTER ROAD CONDITIONS, BETTER STREET LIGHTING, PUTTING BUSINESSES IN CHECK FOR THEIR LACK OF CONCERN OF THE COMMUNITY WITHIN, AND LAW ENFORCEMENT TO QUELL THE CRIME ISSUES, (BURGLARIES, TRESPASSING, AND OVER ALL JUST DON’T CARE ATTITUDE) THAT OTHERS SURROUNDING Q.C. TRY TO BRING IN. IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE. NO LONGER SHOULD Q.C. ISSUES TO BE PUSHED BY JUST ONE PERSON. IT IS TIME FOR THE COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE TO STAND UP AND AS ONE VOICE, SAY, WE ARE HERE, BEEN HERE, AND WILL BE HERE!!!!!!!

    Q.C. HAS AND IS GROWING…NOT JUST WITH THE OLD AFRICAN-AMERICAN FAMILIES THAT STARTED AND ESTABLISHED Q.C., BUT OF VARIOUS ETHNIC GROUPS AND MILITARY PERSONNEL WHO NOW MAKE UP THE Q.C. FAMILY. THE NEED EXISTS FOR THOSE WHO ARE PART OF Q.C., STILL HOLD Q.C. AS HOME, STILL HAVE FAMILY AND FRIENDS IN Q.C., AND WANT A SAFE, VIBRANT COMMUNITY TO CONTINUE GROW INSTEAD OF BEING LEFT BY THE WAYSIDE TO COME FORTH AND SPEAK THEIR MIND ON HOW THE CITIES (BOTH) HAVE LEFT THIS COMMUNITY BLOWING IN THE WIND!!!!

   ARE YOU DOWN, DO YOU CARE??? YOU MAY NOT LIVE HERE ANYMORE, BUT THOSE WE CARE ABOUT DO!!! THE MEMORIES WE HAVE ARE STILL HERE, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, A PART OF YOU IS STILL HERE!!!

   THIS IS THE ROVING REPORTER. GIVE ME A SHOUT AND LET ME KNOW IF I AM TOO MUCH IN LEFT FIELD, ON POINT, COMBINATION OF BOTH, OR WHATEVER!!! EITHER WAY, GOING TO BREAK IT DOWN, AND GUARANTEE, YOU MAY NOT LIKE IT BECAUSE YOU JUST CAN’T PLEASE EVERYBODY AT THE SAME TIME.

   THIS REPORTER IS NOT FROM Q.C., WITH NO FAMILY ROOTS THERE, BUT, I HAVE COME TO ENJOY, AND LOVE, THE Q.C. COMMUNITY. THE FAMILIES AND FRIENDS THAT ARE QUEEN CITY MAKE ME FEEL LIKE I AM HOME WHEN I AM THERE.
