On Saturdays the boys like to sit out on the fire escape and watch the street below and the people that walk it.
I was the “all-American” boy that like to play with trucks and blocks. During a Wednesday afternoon after my nap, I was stacking a tower of colorful wooden and plastic blocks. Suddenly my tower toppled over and a rust-colored block slid under a pipe that ran along the baseboard of the playroom. It was my

It was during school summer holidays of 1951 that I first came across him. A bent old man sitting on an upturned, empty orange box in the middle of a bombsite. He was delighting shabby clothed, happy faced youngsters with stories of Arthurian knights and tales of brave, heroic feats. Mothers of the children rewarded him more often than not with spam and beetroot butties, accompanied by a battered old enamel

The most enjoyable part was that I felt as if I had freedom. I only ever played this game with my close neighbors, being that it involved running around in the community. It was a very big part of my friend group because, it is what brought us together every weekend. - Adolescents: When playing competitive games, such as soccer, I was taught how to play this game through my dad when I was younger.

Kids should go outside because when the weather is nice and the sun is shining, most parents have absolutely no problems sending their children outside to play. Why?

I was pushed down, wrestled with, and experienced cuts, bumps, and bruises just like one of the boys. We would have cookouts and bonfires with corn-on-the-cob and the best hamburgers and hot dogs. We would have birthday parties that were the best I can remember. And on hot summer days we would go down to the pool to swim and play on the playground. Our nights were full of little league baseball games under the bridge at Paul J. Sciullo Field watching the pony league games just waiting for one of the big kids to crack a ball so hard it would hit the bridge.

When unarmed, 17 year old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch for looking suspicious with skittles in his pocket; similarly, when unarmed, 18 year old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer for stealing a pack of cigars, and when other countless unarmed black people have been shot and killed in America, the argument has been whether race affected these situations. Although many still don’t see the social inequality minorities in America still face, the reality for these groups is heartbreaking.

All the kids from the neighborhood gathered together on the street collecting used plastic bottles to create stationed goals.The intensity rose when the natural light of the sun dims. Outdated street lights, and shouts after a player got ridiculed on the court, created an atmosphere I have yet to encounter in the United States. This is “The Concrete Jungle“, where respect is earned by executing elusive skill moves against opponents and the only existing fan base are your opponents waiting to capitalize on your missed opportunities. Countless hours spent playing small soccer games helped me accelerate my competitive attitude which granted me an opportunity my family never thought existed, and helped me escape from all the issues my family was
