Ask your son to name the guy on the left. Now ask your son to name the guy on the right. There is a 98% chance that your son will only be able to name the guy o...n the left.
Allow me to explain: The guy on the left is a rapper and a drug addict, who is teaching your son that it is cool to pop molly and ecstasy pills, to sell cocaine, to wear skirts, and to shoot and kill other black males.
The guy on the right is Myron Rolle. He was an All-American football player at Florida State University. He earned a 4-year degree within 2.5 years, prior to becoming a Rhodes Scholar, and playing in the NFL for three years.
He will graduate from Florida State University's College of Medicine in May of this year, prior to starting his residency in Neurosurgery at Harvard University.
Your son has never even HEARD of Myron Rolle, but he idolizes, emulates, and dreams of becoming the guy on the left.
Houston.................we have a PROBLEM!!
Will the war and the heartbreak never end?
It's Sunday and I was originally going to post something comforting to help us meet the new day. But then I saw thes...e haunting news photos showing a man grieving for loved ones who were found dead in the rubble of a home in a Mosul neighborhood where U.S. officials acknowledge that an airstrike by American forces occurred, and where residents say more than 100 people were killed in a single event.
I could only try to put myself in his place, and I could understand his pain and agony over losing someone in this war in Iraq which never ever seems to end. The madness of war just overtakes us and any good that may occur seems at times to be outweighed by the damage done to innocent people. How many more news stories will we continue to read about this terrible war which never concludes? Why do we let this happen? I no longer understand anything. What about you?
