PELAPCOLA RECORDS: ‘LET’S PUT OUR GUNS AWAY’ CAMPAIGN'
“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
For too long people have allowed the environment in which we live to control them, rather than taking control of their environment. This may come as a surprise to you, but the richest deposits on our planet is not Gold, Silver, Oil or Uranium, it is young people buried beneath the soil within the walls of those sacred grounds we call the “Cemetery”. In the beginning God created man by speaking to himself. He took a little bit of himself and put it into the first man. But, the life God intended for his children was destroyed by their own disobedience; and man’s disobedience over the generations has grown to such a degree, that we no longer value the sanctity of life and give thought to the commandment of our Creator, “Thou Shalt Not Kill’! No one is immune from this scourge, not even the elderly or the most precious gift of all, ‘Our Children”. What is most disheartening is that the curse that plagues our culture and our society is growing, and has our youth killing each other at an unprecedented rate, especially in major- cities. Killing each other over trivial matters; over turf that they do not own, basketball sneakers, friendships, girlfriends, Rappers, and on and on. Stupid, crazy stuff! There is so little regard for human life! No respect for the traditional “Heroes” in our lives and our communities. We are losing our humanity and respect for God. Something must be done to reverse this curse and reeducate our youth and our communities. We cannot continue to allow more Americans to be killed by handguns every two years, than lives lost during the Vietnam War. Love, Peach and Unity must be restored. Our communities must once again come to believe, “There is a brighter day ahead’!
MISSION PELAPCOLA RECORDS’ “Let’s Put Our Guns Away” campaign is a timely message that will bring about solidarity and hope through the inspiration and power of music. Our message is simple “More Life Ahead or No Life Ahead”. So with that in mind, let’s join together in making this campaign a reality and a success.
GOAL The “Let’s Put Our Guns Away” campaign goal is to create a vehicle to bring people together via music, commercials, television media, music videos, radio, concerts and to use it as a learning tool for our communities. The “Let’s Put Our Guns Away Campaign has an additional component. The “Heroes in Our Eyes” Component complement the Put the Guns Away Campaign by reteaching and reestablishing the importance of the roles traditional heroes play to improve our communities and our individual lives. Heroes provided by God and to protect and guide us, so we can have life and have it more abundantly. Law Enforcement, Military Members, Firemen, Elected Officials, Ministers, Fathers, Mothers, Uncles, Aunts, Medical Personnel, etc.; all are here to protect and guide our youths and are to be respected. It is time to Cease Fire and Respect those God has placed over us! “Let’s Put Our Guns Away and come together as Communities of Faith!!
HOW? PELAPCOLA RECORDS believes that our goals will be accomplished through the universal language of music. We will accomplish this via community concerts, music videos, and the media (radio, television, commercials, documentaries and Public Service Announcements, using ‘Legends’ in Music Industry and Heroes in Our Communities, targeting our most vulnerable youth. Music is a universal language, that is the best medium to educate, inspire and change habits and conduct. It is spiritual in all genres. It connects and captivates. It is Spiritual! A Gift from God!
