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.

Peace, Righteous Love & Revolution Always,
