An Old Friend!

Good morning everyone! One day you receive a knock at the front door of your home and to your surprise, it’s and old friend.You haven’t seen this person in nearly twenty years. You recently thought about this person and wondered how they were doing. You thought of the many experiences that you shared together during your hustling days. You thought about the time that you had each others back and could always rely on one another for help. You realized that this person has been struggled just by their appearance. This person tells you about their current struggle with addiction to several hardcore drugs. This person then ask if they could stay with you, your wife, and young child for a few days. Would you allow this friend to stay with you or would you make an excuse? How would you handle this situation?

 

Is There Hope For Our Youth?

Good morning everyone! While reflecting over my life,realized that I made a lot of mistakes. I’ve ┬ádone several things that went against some of the things that my mother taught me. I can remember standing on those dangerous street corners of Riverside Projects in Wilmington, Delaware. I sold drugs as well as used them. I took trips to Philadelphia and New York City in order to make a quick flip.I lived a completely reckless life. In my book “100 Years” http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B00TLXK5L6, I explained how I continued taking risk with my life and ended up learning things the hard way. As I fast forward back to 2015, some of our youth are doing the same things I did or even worse. My question is: Is there hope for our youth? As parents; are we doing all that we can in order to guide, teach, and set a good example for our youth to follow? On the other hand, should we give- up on our youth and allow them to learn the hard way? Let me know your thoughts!
