Life In Philadelphia: One Woman’s Story! – The LanceScurv Show

Depending on who you ask, life in Philadelphia could be considered great just as it can be seen as the worst place in the world.

It’s not only in Philadelphia where you’ll get such a wide range of responses, because it’s everywhere in the urban areas large and small because the world seems not to offer a hiding place from the somewhat ugly conditions that thrive around every corner of the world.

But in Philly – a close cousin of New York City – the gap between the rich and poor, the haves and have nots are just as broad as any other destination you could mention.

There are countless stories of prosperity and poverty all rolled in to a feeling of hope and hopelessness.

In the underbelly of the City Of Brotherly Love, some make it out while others seemed to be forever trapped because of the overwhelming mentality that causes them to get stuck in an invisible rut that appears as real as the police tape that lines their streets.

Here is one woman’s story derived from her experiences growing up from a unique perspective that many will never see.

Feel free to leave your reactions to this very riveting and compelling journey in the comment box below.

Peace, Righteous Love & Revolution Always,

Your Brother,



Philly Graphic

    It wasn’t too long ago that the entire state of Florida (damn near) had a real bad outbreak in gang violence but they’ve been deploying U.S. Marshals and task forces all over and using “RICO” laws to combat it in the worst places. I don’t know what’s going on in Philly and Chicago but I’m willing to bet that both of these places have high levels of corruption, racism and probably a real lack of political will. I’m not sure but it’s just a wild guess since I’ve never been to any of these places before.

    I lost alot of people too. I also have lived all over the world, in and out of the military. My family and friends say the same about me about moving. However if you have friends, family and property you got to do what you got too. The streets will get you if you playing them. its alot of positive things hear like good jobs and schools and culture. When i leave philly, im proud of were im from. Especially because its ruff.
