It Caused A LOT of Uproar
My favorite Ted Talks of all times is called A guerilla gardener in South Central LA | Ron Finley. It was the first Ted Talk I ever saw in my life. This video was shared with me in my English 1102 class. The thing that intrigued me about this video is that everyone, has the same opportunity to be and create greatness. Ron Finley took advantage of the opportunity and fixed many needs that needed to be addressed in his community. Those needs were poverty, poor nutritional diets, and lack of community involvement and interaction. He turned his opportunity into an educational and nutritional opportunity for the community. One may view Ron’s actions as a hobby but its more than that. Ron’s action is a movement, an expression of art, and served as a source of enlightenment for South Central LA. I won’t tell you what he did that left such a positive impact on his community, but what I will say is that it caused a lot of uproar and he encountered a lot of adversity because of his actions.
