1. These photos were taken in the Casco Viejo neighborhood of Panama City, Panama. To me, these images symbolize how intertwined the Half Full and Half Empty elements of our communities really are. On one side, you have a newly renovated, luxury hotel that caters to American and European tourists. Then literally several inches over, you can see what living conditions look like for the vast majority of actual Panamanian residents of the area. Both Halves of the Glass.

  3. this is really sad and I will fight and maybe I can help people in slums and slopes. this people in the future will be saved. somebody needs to do something to help these people
    Help fight
    Help convince people to tell what is going on in other counties. But one day I will fight and help those poor people.

  4. Mr. Allen has a great blog. People need to realize that there is a site like this and need to read it to see how people can save the world.
    I know there are some heroes out in the world and they need to come out and speak up and help fight our country about gangs and help fight other countries such as drug trafficking to slums and slopes in the other countries. Thanks Mr. Allen for having a great blog and site I will tell other people and friends about this site thank you πŸ™‚

  5. Thanks for the support Reggie!

    You mentioned that there are “some heroes out in the world.” From my perspective, no one is born a “hero.” Ordinary people like you can choose to become heroes by simply listening to and acting upon the words of Dr. Suess: “Unless someone like you cares a whole aweful lot, nothing is going to get better, it’s not.”

    -Mr. Allen

      Just so you know, it is absolutely free to start a blog like this. You could actually continue developing your amazing writing skills through a blog of your own if you’d like… Let me know if you’re interested and I can show you how to set it up πŸ™‚
