I will not give up.
Somebody has the responsibility to tell them they can make it, someone can tell them they have options, they don’t have to limit themselves there is so many positive things that we can instill, I try every time I talk to my children. I have four sons, I told them they have x amount of negative statistic against them already. They have to be leaders not followers, this day in age I told my sons they have to rise above what society expects from the negative statistic that predicted for them.
We have as I stated before lived in to major cities Boston and New Orleans I had to take control, I think people got mad at me because I did not let too many get close. When one portrayed negativity I did not want my children to adopt I took my children and self out of the equation.
I am not going to say, life is easy because it is not I need a job right now; however I am trying to obtain my bachelors degree. I have to be able to practice what I preach and right now I feel so sad, because I don’t have a job.
I do feel great that I am going to college to get my bachelors so I am still leading by example, the job economy for me, I think has to be reinvented or I would have to reinvent myself to adjust to the need of society but first and for most my family.
So I suggest to my son's to do thier very best. I know no one is perfect but, if you dont try you fail.
