What would you do if your son, just starting his adult life, was gunned down senselessly on the street? This happened to Dayo Adetula when his son Joseph Adetula was gunned down on the night of July 4, 2005, while walking home from a convenience store. The only information: witnesses say the shots came from a four-door gold or tan vehicle that sped off. Joseph was shot nine times. Dayo was at Joseph's side when the ambulance came. Tragically, Joseph died at the hospital only a short time later. The murder is still unsolved, despite heavy media coverage, police efforts, and Dayo Adetula's own attempts to find out who killed his son. Many people, in this situation, might be bitter, or hopeless. Not Dayo Adetula. Adetula has started a non-profit foundation in his son's name to educate young black men about the effects of violence.

Through the Joseph Adetula Foundation, Dayo Adetula will:

  • Help develop safer neighbourhoods through neighbour involvement in the community;
  • Raise money for after school programs; pay for new playground equipment, computers, field trips, and sports equipment in local schools; and
  • Help young people become informed about school and college internships and leadership development and community services opportunities.

Young people attending the after school program will participate in substance abuse mentoring for younger children as well as pregnancy prevention, violence prevention, and other youth issues. The Joseph Adetula Foundation cannot do it alone. We need community involvement, adults to act as volunteers,Mentoring and leaders for the young people, also we ask for donations to continue paying for the many services we will provide. With your help, we will have no more tragedies. Help our young people grow up and develop into the fine adults they are destined to be. Support the Joseph Adetula Foundation.

Dayo Adetula,
I am so pleased to have someone as yourself always fighting on the frontline to
ensure that our kids receive the best education possible. Realizing that this
happens when we (Principal, Teachers, Administrators, Parents, and
others) strive
together to reach Academic Excellence for all students.
Thank you,

Dayo --
This morning, Michelle and I awoke to some surprising and humbling news. At 6 a.m., we received word
that I'd been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009.
To be honest, I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures
who've been honored by this prize -- men and women who've inspired me and inspired the entire world through their courageous pursuit of peace.
But I also know that throughout history the Nobel Peace Prize has not just been used to honor specific achievement;
it's also been used as a means to give momentum to a set of causes.
That is why I've said that I will accept this award as a call to action, a call for all nations and all peoples to confront the common challenges of the 21st century.
These challenges won't all be met during my presidency, or even my lifetime. But I know these challenges can be met so long as it's recognized that they will not be met by one person or one nation alone.
This award -- and the call to action that comes with it -- does not belong simply to me or my administration;
it belongs to all people around the world who have fought for justice and for peace. And most of all,
it belongs to you, the men and women of America, who have dared to hope and have worked so hard to make our world a little better.
So today we humbly recommit to the important work that we've begun together.
I'm grateful that you've stood with me thus far, and I'm honored to continue our vital work in the years to come.
Thank you,
President Barack Obama

Joseph Adetula Foundation Our Motto,"For every hurt there is a helper" Joseph Adetula 1986-2005 A life Not Lived"

What do you do to keep your children safe?

Do you watch every move they make? Do you know their friends? Do you ensure they have safe places to play, go to school, and hang out?

I did. But my son Joseph Adetula is dead. He was the victim of a drive-by shooting. He was only eighteen years old, and no one knows why he was killed, or who did it. We may never know.

He was one of thousands of American teenagers and children killed every year in acts of violence.

I can't bring my son back. No one can.

But I can make things better for other children in our community, and so can you.

Today, when you look out your window, what do you see? Are your streets clean, well-kept, and filled with happy children playing, riding bikes, and having fun?

Or are they dark and depressing places, with weeds and trash everywhere, suspicious looking teenagers, and not a child in sight?

If you live in the first sort of neighborhood, you should count yourself fortunate. Many children in our city live in the second type of neighborhood. Some don't feel safe when they play outside. Others have family problems: single working parents, alcoholic or drug-addicted parents, or severe poverty.

Regardless of who these children are, they are all our children. It is our responsibility, as the adults of the community, to show them what they can be some day, to give them pride in their community, and to guide them as they become the new adults of all our tomorrows.

How You Can Help

Drive through the poorer neighborhoods of town and look around. Open your eyes. You may see run-down, dangerous playgrounds. You may see parks with not a single patch of green. You might see garbage on the streets, or weeds growing through old broken sidewalks.

What does this do to the children who live in this environment every single day?

Pay attention to the children, too. Are they happy and motivated? Do they do well in school, stay out of trouble, go to college to make better lives for themselves? Or are they dropping out to raise children or get jobs at fast-food restaurants and factories?

We can't fix the adults in our neighborhoods. But we can do things to show the children that we care, we are there for them, and we are willing and able to guide them. We can be role models. And we can all care for our city's children by giving them a better environment in which to thrive.

To do this in our world today, we need money. Money fixes the playgrounds, grows flowers and grass in the parks, picks up the trash and repairs the sidewalks. And money provides the children who would otherwise drop out with the places to go, things to do, and extra help and motivation that will get them to stay in school and make their lives everything we hope for them.

If you can't give today, at least look around and see the need. You can help today by being a good example, and by encouraging the children already in your life. But when you can, give to the Joseph Adetula Foundation. We are a 501(c)(3), 509(a)(1) under the National Heritage Foundation corporation, so your donations are tax-deductible. And even a little bit will help.
