This is a great weekend. Today is Juneteenth and tomorrow is Father’s Day! Celebrating Freedom and Father’s on the same weekend. As an African American, It’s important for me to appreciate, value, and make the best of my freedom . This means making responsible choices and avoid misleading anyone down the path of crime. To be a Father is one of the greatest gifts. To be trusted with guiding a human life is priceless. I will continue to be grateful as I continue to grow and become a better Man, Husband, and Father. This is only possible through the freedom that I have.

While in New Orleans I got to experience the Great food and excellent service at “Dooky Chase” restaurant. They showed us and everyone there a warm hospitality. My Family (wife, daughter and I), really enjoyed ourselves while their. One of the highlights was the History lesson that we’ve learned while there. The Disney Movie “The Princess and the Frog” was inspired by Mrs. Leah Chase. The movie “The Princess and the Frog was inspired by the New Orleans Restaurant “Dooky Chase.” In the movie the young princess “Tiana” had a dream of owning her own restaurant. Tiana’s dream later became a reality as she served Gumbo and other Cajun food.I wish that I would have met her before she passed on.

There is a cycle of crime, drugs use and sales, gun violence, and prison among our youth. Within our inner cities, some people can name two individuals within their family who have been incarcerated at one point. The only answer to this problem is to lock them up and throw away the key. That will lead to a world of prisoners. As an alternative I believe that we must educate our youth and give the ones who want more out of life to have an opportunity to succeed. In my new book “100 Years: Truth Be Told” I attempt to educate our youth as well as adults. My goal is to give the warning as I paint the picture and then allow them to make an informed decision. There is always hope. #AnythingIsPossible #100Years #CantAffordToLoseAnotherGeneration #TheFutureOfOurYouth
