YOUR TURN: Proud to be a Memphian

(WMC-TV) - This week's "Your Turn" goes to Kelsey Jacobson.  Jacobson happens to be the Internet Content Director for Action News 5, celebrating her first year with our team, and as a new Mid-South resident. She has some thoughts about her new hometown. In her words:

I am so proud to consider myself a Memphian, but it makes me sad that not everyone feels the same way I do. Memphis has incredible things to offer -- Redbirds baseball, Memphis Grizzlies, live music everywhere you turn, incredible parks, and the list goes on and on. Sure, Memphis has crime. But what big city doesn't? In my opinion, the great things our city has to offer outweigh the bad tenfold. I love it here, and I want to challenge other Memphians to start focusing on the positive things our city has to offer. We can't change the perception of our city unless we believe it ourselves.

That's Kelsey Jacobson's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email or call 800-465-1210.
